Subject   st: Tips for writing code to consolidate observations?
Date   Tue, 13 Nov 2012 22:00:14 +0100

I have a large dataset that has multiple observations per individual
and need to convert to single line observations (9,000 lines rows but
really only a few hundred subjects).  The data columns that account
for the multiple observations are unnecessary (see below, e.g.,
ICD-9).  The first occurrence of the data that I need to capture is
the first time the observation occurs.  As there are about 500
subjects, I was hoping there is some code to convert to single
observations/line.  See the example below of what I have and what I
would like it to look like.
