Subject: Changing variables formats
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="ISO-8859-1"
I have an unbalanced panel data set of firms. There is a date variable
which is formated as ddmmyy10. It begins on 01/01/1999 and finishes at
01/02/2007, that is, from 1 to 98 values. I cannot just do something like
since I will tranpose this table in a next step and I will nedd to keep
the temporal order.
So, I would like to create a new date2 variable relating each date in the
date variable to a number of the date2 variable.
Any idea about this issue?
