Thanks as usual (but not less serious) to Kit Baum, a new version of -scores- is available from SSC.

-scores- generates a new variable of scores (row-wise) of a set of variables allowing the specification of the number of valid values required by using row functions of -egen-.

The new version also allows to calculate median and percentile scores, proportions of maximum possible scores, and shrunken proportions of maximum possible scores - the latter are useful for dependent variables in beta regression models, see Smithson & Verkuilen (2006, p. 54f.) and -findit betafit-.

Additionally, -scores- now allows by: and fweights, aweights, or iweights (only useful if requesting z-scores, mean centered scores, or shrunken proportions of maximum possible scores).

Smithson, M. & Verkuilen, J. (2006). A better lemon squeezer? Maximum-likelihood regression with beta-distributed dependent variables. Psychological Methods, 11, 54-71.

I'm wishing all of you all the best for the new year!
