Does this do what you want? bysort firm_id (year) : gen starter = export[_n] == 1 & export[_n-1] == 0 list, sepby(firm_id) -- 010100100110111101101110011011100110100101100101 On Friday, July 27, 2012 at 1:14 PM, umut senalp wrote: > Dear Ronnie, > > Thank you for your reply, as you said, the code you provided has generated "always_exporter" successfully. > > Regarding to your latest reply: > > generate starter == . > replace starter == 1 if export2003 == 0 & export2004 == 1 > > I do not think that I will be able to capture all "starters" with this way practically, since some firms start to export 2005 some of them 2007 etc. So I need to write a code to find the first export dummy taking the value of "1" for each firm, it will show me that the firm switch from 0 to 1 first time (means it start to export). I tried to show what I am trying to do with an example below.

I have an unbalanced data for over 2000 firms (covering the period 2003-2011) and I have a dummy variable for the firms' export status (Export=1 if firm have positive export value that year). While, a few firms observed for all 9 years (2003-2011), majority of them observed for minimum 2 years consecutively. > > > > I want to create a new set of dummy variables indicating the year that a firm started to export (Starter), > > > > one year before starting to export (Year_before),and for the following two years that the firm started to export which are Year_After and Two_Years_After. > > > > So, I want to generate 4 new dummies based on the firm's Export status. In addition to that, I have some firms which are exporter for the all period that they are observable (means I do not know when they started to export), and I want to name them as Always_Exporter. > > > > > > > > Since I am not so familiar with programming in Stata I tried following command but it failed, it was just for the firms that I have observation for 2003 onwards, anyway. > > > > gen starter=0 > > > > replace starter=1 if export==0 in 2003 & export==1 in 2004 > > > > > > > > And I realised that this approach will not work since I need to do it for many times for following years to catch all starters. > > > > > > > > Well, I think I need to use a program that includes loop but I don't know where to start to write the code.
