Thanks!

-rolling- worked. But If I am interested in

Maximum wage in 1940 to 2000

Maximum wage in 1941 to 2000

Maximum wage in 1942 to 2000

Maximum wage in 1943 to 2000

and so on till

Maximum wage in 1999 to 2000

How can i use -rolling- to compute this.

Thanks in advance.

Your most robust option is to use -rolling-. For example,

**********************************************

webuse lutkepohl2, clear

tsset qtr

rolling roll_max=r(max), window(1) ///

recursive: su inv

**********************************************
