Hey everyone, I am a complete newbie when it comes to Eviews or econometrics for that matter, but I have an assignment which has me using program.
The work that I have to do is, download observations for USA public companies from 1971 to 2010, with a number of accounting variables. Overall I get 300k observations.
What I need to do is to narrow down the sample to only the companies that have been public for those whole time period (40 years) and delete all the other companies that either went public after or died before the 2010.
How exactly can this be done? I have spent the last few days trying to figure it out in veil.
