I have generated a variable that determines the relative quarters to a specific event :
 gen byte quarter7=0 if newviol==1
 replace quarter7=-7 if F7.newviol==1
 replace quarter7=-6 if F6.newviol==1
 replace quarter7=-5 if F5.newviol==1
 replace quarter7=-4 if F4.newviol==1
 replace quarter7=-3 if F3.newviol==1
 replace quarter7=-2 if F2.newviol==1
 replace quarter7=-1 if F.newviol==1 

Subsequently, I computed the median leverageratio for 2 groups (firms in competitive and non competitive industries)
by quarter7, sort : egen float medianleverageratiolow = median(leverageratiolow)
by quarter7, sort : egen float medianleverageratiohigh = median(leverageratiohigh)

Subset of data looks like this:
medianleverageratiohigh medianleverageratiolow quarter7
.2334801 .1243232                              . 
.2334801 .1243232                              -7
.2958866 .236993                               -6
.2957524 .230218                               -5
.2953402 .2316445                              -4
.3119317 .2338386                              -3
.3281921 .2446502                              -2
.3232706 .2491048                              -1
.3490512 .2641283                              0
.2334801 .1243232                              .
.2334801 .1243232                              .
.2334801 .1243232                              . 
  
 
Thank you,
