Dear All

I have a survey dataset of 6 countries for 3000 respondents. Respondents
have age between 15 to 75. The survey was conducted in 1998. Also I have the
inflation for each country. Now I would like to compute a variable
inflation_experience(Inflation experienced in adult life) for each
respondent in each country and this variable should be computed as:

For each respondent in each country

year_of_birth = 1998-age
adult_year = year_of_birth+15
inflation_experience = max(inflation between adult_year and 1998)

I am having problem to write a loop to compute this variable. Please help!!

Regards,


ajjee
