Thanks Eric, Dimitriy, and Nick for your help, -levelsof- does the
trick! Nick, what I'm doing is performing various checks on hospital
panel data in order to automatically generate a report. Now and then
anomalies are found which I want to look more closely at. Take my
original example; the hospids 50, 47, and 25 are hospitals with large
leaps in mortality rates in a year. For the report, I want to list all
of the years of data for the hospitals with anomalies, thus I need the
hospids.

Jake
