Hi Gokhan Maybe something like gen newvar=. gsort time -group bysort time: replace newvar=ewportret-ewportret[_n+1] if group==1 & group[_n+1]==0 Or in a loop gen newvar=. forvalues n=1/6 { replace newvar=ewportret-ewportret[`n'] if time==time[`n'] & group==1 } Anna On Tue, Nov 15, 2011 at 1:21 PM, <yilmag@rpi.edu> wrote: > Dear All, > > How can i create a new variable that is equal to the difference in ewportret > (see below table) between two groups in the same month? > For example: the first row of the newvar below would be equal to (.0375245- > .041679) and the second row would be equal to(.0397919- .0449738) > > > group time ewportret newvar > > 1 2007m4 .0375245 > 1 2007m5 .0397919 > 1 2007m6 -.0188678 > 0 2007m4 .041679 > 0 2007m5 .0449738 > 0 2007m6 -.0240277 > > > Thank you > > Gokhan > > > * > * For searches and help try: > * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search > * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq > * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ > * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
