I have a data set, in which companies pay dividends in different months in different years. I'd like to create a sequence of quarter dividend for 18 years.
I plan to group the dividend in different months into quarter dividend first, then create quarter dividend sequencing for different years next. Will there be any different and better way to do it? And would you kindly help me on the SAS procedures and programming please?
I think you want to aggregate dividends for all companies, by quarter, correct? If so, what are your date variables? I.e., are they sas date values? Or possibly year and month variables? Could you show a sample of what your sas data set currently contains?
