```Thanks, Nick. I think I got it!

sort group date2
gen count1=.
gen mean1=.
qui forval i = 1/`=_N'{
count if group==group[`i'] &
inrange(date2,ninetydaysbefore[`i'],date1[`i'])
replace count1 = r(N) in `i'
summarize price if group==group[`i'] &
inrange(date2,ninetydaysbefore[`i'],date1[`i'])
replace mean1 = r(mean) in `i'
}
