Dear Nick,

thanks a lot! This was very helpful. Indeed, the event variable takes the value 
of 1 at the time of event and zero before that. 


I have just a quick question: how shall I proceed if I need to keep the year 
when the event has occurred and the previous year but drop any other preceding 
years?

KR,
Rado

It is not clear what value -event- takes when it is not 1. I will suppose 0.

bysort x year (event) : gen occurred = event[_N]

spreads occurrences to all the weeks in the year in which they occurred.

keep if occurred

then -drops- entire years without events.
