sorry, I hit the send button by mistake!

I would like to correct self-reported data inconsistencies in a panel
data set. For example, if there is an education variable, which is
reported 5 times, say as follows:

year     educ

2000     12

2002     11

2004     13

2006     12

2008     11

I wonder if anyone has a simple program that can be implemented to
correct such inconsistencies. Thanks in advance.

David
