st: Matrix question |

I have a large mata matrix that I want to reduce: I want to replace each block of five rows with a single row containing their mean. My brute force approach goes as follows | mata: | t = mean(s[1..5 , ]) | for (i=2; i<=rows(s)/5; i++) { | t = t \ mean(s[1+(i-1)*5..5+(i-1)*5 , ]) | } | end This works, but am I missing a more efficient way of doing this, some Mata or matrix-algebra trick? Something tells me that I should be able to avoid looping here.
