Subject   st: creating deciles by location by year
Date   Tue, 14 Aug 2012 21:28:25 -0400

I am using Stata 11, I have a panel data set that has multiple years, locations, and companies.  I am trying to create deciles by year by location. 
I use the following code to calculate deciles by year, but how can I add one more level and calculate by year by location?

gen size_decile = .
levelsof year, local(tempyear)
foreach i in `tempyear' {
xtile decile_temp=size if year==`i', nq(10)
replace size_decile = decile_temp if missing(size_decile)
drop decile_temp
