Hello Ekaterina, it would be helpful if you provide the code you have written. Kind regards Oliver Am 20.02.2012 12:49, schrieb Ekaterina Hertog:Dear all, I use Stata 12. I have a dataset which includes id number, sex and income information for every individual. I would like to construct for every man 3 variables: what is the proportion of the total female population that earns as much as he does, that earns less than he does, and that earns more than he does. I have tried creating a table which gives me frequencies of individuals by sex by income, but am getting stuck at that stage. Any help would be appreciated, Ekaterina * * 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/
