Hi Nick, lets say the data looks like this: id____isspread____start____end____transaction 1_____1___________3________6______. 2_____0___________.________.______5 3_____1___________2________5______. 4_____0___________.________.______5.5 now what I want Stata to do is to tell me (for example by creating additional variables that contain the ids) that ids 2 and 4 occured between start and end date of observation 1 (5 and 5.5 are between 3 and 6) and that id 2 occured between the start and end date of spread 3 (5 is weakly between 2 and 5). A perfect result of the procedure would look like this: id____isspread____start____end____transaction____tr1___tr2 1_____1___________3________6______.______________2_____4__ 2_____0___________.________.______5______________._____.__ 3_____1___________2________5______.______________2_____.__ 4_____0___________.________.______5.5____________._____.__ Best, Jens -------- Original-Nachricht -------- > Datum: Thu, 25 Aug 2011 14:22:19 +0100 > Von: Nick Cox <njcoxstata@gmail.com> > An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Betreff: Re: st: Relative Comparision between Observations > Please show a representative chunk of your data so that precisely what > are your variables and your observations becomes clear. > > Nick > > On Thu, Aug 25, 2011 at 2:09 PM, <chaiselongue@gmx.de> wrote: > > > I want to perform the following task for a very large dataset (so > writing a Mata loop is probably not the solution): the dataset consists of two > sorts of data: spreads and transactions.
