Hey Nick

thanks for your reply. 

for the cumulative work exp, no matter how many jobs they hold simutaneously, I 
only count them served in employment. that is, only count the overlapping time 
once. 


any suggestions?

I think we need -- correction, I need -- your definition of accumulated or 
cumulative work experience. (By the way, I suggest either word, not 
accumulative.)

Do you or do you not count time served simultaneously in two or more jobs with 
that much weight or you just count time served in employment?

Hey Sky


yesterday I post a question on how to calculate the mean wage under  panel data. 

thanks for David valuable suggestions. the tested code are  as above.

now I have another question about panel data: how to calculate the  accumulative 

work experience while getting rid off the overlapping  period? 


example data as follows, the j_sta/j_sto represents job starting/stoping  time 
and id, as before, represents the people who participates in  survey.  


as you can see, the various overlapping situation make it hard to  entangle and 
get the right work experience. for id=1, a perfect  situation that he start his 
2nd job after finished his 1st one. for  id=2, even there is an overlapping 
period between his 1st and 2nd job,  it is not hard to get accumulative exp 
right. 


now consider a little more complicated case for 3 or more jobs. such as  id=3, 
overlapping between 1st and 2nd but not 3rd job. for id=7, his  all 3 jobs are 
overlapped. now take a look at id=5, though there is no  overlapping between his 

1st and 3rd job, his 2nd job are totally covered  by his 3rd job. id=6 is in a 
similar situation with overlapping  between 1st and 3rd job.

any suggestions are appreciated.

**** suggested by David  ****
reshape long wage, i(id jobid) j(wave)

drop if mi(wage)
sort id wave jobid
by id wave (jobid): keep if _n==_N

by id: egen meanwage = mean(wage)
