looping collapse seconds to minutes

Hi - 

I want to write a loop to collapse my seconds level dummy variables (from 0:00:00 to 23:59:59, 86400 variables in total) to minutes level varibales(sum all seconds within one minute), right now my data looks like this:

id second1 second2 second3 ........ seconds86398 seconds86399 seconds86400

1   1            1             .                      .                              1                      1

2                                                             1                        1                      1

3   1            1             1

The ideal dataset is like this

id   min1 min2 min3 .........  min1439 min1440

1    2       0      0                          0         2

2    0       0      0                          30      45

3    32      24   39                         0       0

Without looping, I have to type the code for 1440 times:

data want;
    set have;
   min1 = sum(of second1-seconds60);
   min2 = sum(of seconds61-seconds120);
   min3 = sum(of second121-seconds180);
   ......
   min1440 = sum(of seconds86340- seconds86400);
run;

Any idea?

 

Thanks!

Re: looping collapse seconds to minutes

You could do this with a series of arrays and programming statements, but it is probably easiest to use the macro language.

data want;
   set have;
   %macro loop;
   %do i = 1 %to 1440;
      min&i = sum(of seconds%eval((&i-1)*60+1) - seconds%eval(&i*60));
      %end;
   %mend;
   %loop;
  run;
