st: Going through each observation of a variable |

Dear Statalist users, I am newbie in Stata programming and I am stuck on something that is probably very simple - but I could not find the answer on the list server. I would like to compute the mean and standard deviation of an expression (P1*os1+P2*os2) that is computed for prices under different scenarios. I have 500 scenarios, so the variables price1 and price2 have 500 observations. I came up with the program below, which works fine, but it chooses random values of price1 and price2 variables. I would like like the program go through each observation of price1 price2 one by one. How would I do that? Any help will be appreciated! Thanks a lot! Derya gen k=0 gen wmean=0 gen wsum=0 gen wsqdev=0 gen wsd=0 forv k=1/500 { gen r = uniform() sort r gen select =_n==1 scalar P1=price1 scalar P2=price2 drop r select gen Y_`k'=P1*os1+P2*os2 replace k=`k' replace wsum=wsum+Y_`k' replace wmean=wsum/`k' replace wsqdev=wsqdev+((wmean-Y_`k')^2) replace wsd=sqrt(wsqdev/(k-1)) } * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/resources/statalist-faq/ * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
