Dear statalist,

I am trying to do something that it's probably basic but I cannot get to the bottom of it.
I have a typical unbalanced panel dataset. Some of my observations happen to have an event at a certain point in time (coded 1 in the 'event' column). For them I would like to generate a new variable (newvar) that takes value 1 from the year of the first event onwards. The year of the first event obviously changes from case to case. (see the example below)

id      year    event   newvar
a       2001    0       0
a       2002    0       0
a       2003    1       1
a       2004    1       1
b       2005    0       0
b       2006    1       1
b       2007    0       1
b       2008    0       1
b       2009    0       1
...

I imagine that the command to do this starts with: by id... but I wouldn't know how continue that. Any suggestions?

Thank you!
Riccardo
