series with embedded smpl?

Postby cbonham » Wed Aug 02, 2017 12:24 pm

Is there any way to manipulate a series over a specified sample period without issuing a separate smpl command?

For example, in other software packages I have worked with it is possible to write something like

series 2017Q1 2017Q2 sersx = 25
series 2017Q3 2017Q3 sersx = 30
series 2017Q4 2017Q4 sersx = 40

to create sersx for 2017Q1-17Q4 as
25, 25, 30, 40

Thanks
Carl

Hello,

Avoiding the use of smpl or sample objects, when you're assigning values to sequential observations the series fill proc is useful, e.g.:

Code: Select all

series sersx
sersx.fill(o=2017Q1) 25, 25, 30, 40
