A list of all connected managers can be generated directly using the -joinby- command: *----------- begin example ------------- version 12 clear input fid str1 mid 1 A 1 B 1 C 2 A 2 B 2 D end tempfile main save "`main'" * within each firm, form all pairwise combinations of managers use "`main'" rename mid mid2 joinby fid using "`main'" list fid mid mid2, noobs sepby(mid2) * reduce to connected managers list sort mid mid2 by mid mid2: keep if _n == 1 drop if mid2 <= mid list mid mid2, noobs sepby(mid) tempfile connect save "`connect'" * to get a complete list of all possibilities * form all pairwise combinations of managers use "`main'", clear keep mid sort mid by mid: keep if _n == 1 tempfile mgrs save "`mgrs'" rename mid mid2 cross using "`mgrs'" sort mid mid2 list mid mid2, noobs sepby(mid) drop if mid2 <= mid * final list merge 1:1 mid mid2 using "`connect'" gen connect = _merge == 3 sort mid mid2 list mid mid2 connect, noobs sepby(mid) *------------ end example -------------- On Mon, Feb 20, 2012 at 7:25 AM, Nick Cox <n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk> wrote: > Sorry, no; that's a different problem. > > Nick > n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk > > > -----Original Message----- > From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Nick Cox > Sent: 20 February 2012 10:54 > To: 'statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu' > Subject: st: RE: Transform source table to edgelist (or nodelist) > > This looks like an FAQ > > http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/data/pairs.html > > although I suspect there is a less clumsy way to approach it. > > Nick > n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk > > Steve Sauerwald > > I have a source table that contains manager/firm information.
