Dear Statalis,

I need to get the mean and median for some firms in a certain year
(2000-2012) and certain industry (73 industries). e.g. the mean and
median for assets for the firms operate in industry 6 in year 2004,
and so on. I tried the following nested loop but I got error (109).

p.s. I need the mean and median as new variables as they will be used
in further calculations.




foreach v of var  Assets Liab Income {
	forval y=2000/2012 {
			 forval  i= 1/73 {
				qui su `v' if  fyear==`y'& sic==`i'& country==1
				gen mean_`v' = r(mean)
				gen median_`v' = r(median)
}
}
}

type mismatch
r(109);


Many thanks

Nahla Betelmal
