Hello everyone,

My question this time is different which is 

of course my dependent variable is expressed by one value if the firm misstated the financial statement zero otherwise. I have the datafile which contains only the firms that have misstated the financial statement( means with one value) in the meantime i have the data file for all firms that belong to independent  and control variables. but how can i match the firm that misstated with non_misstated firms/

because when i run the regression model by first file the result comes out as omitted variables.

 please i need to link misstated firms with non_misstated firm in order to be analyzable. 

I hope you get my point and you have a solution.  

 

thanks in advance

I have found a problem with the macro as posted on github. Line 132 is commented out with an asterisk; remove that asterisk, rerun the macro definition, and then it should honor the file= parameter and write the external program file. The code in the log does not contain the delimiting commas in the datalines block that are necessary for it to work properly.

Perhaps if you provided some example input and output data in the form of a data step, then that might help our understanding of what you require.

 

If you have tried something and are getting an error then please share the code and log.

 

If this is related to another question then please share a link to that question too.

 

 

Regards,

Amir.

thanks @Amir 

i did not try any thing because I knew it when i was hepping someone in his analysis, so I have not try because the mean of my dependent variable is one since i have no zero value.

you are gonna see normal observations 

my dataset contains over 5000 obs, all those obs represent the firm that misstated the financial statement only so when i combine it with the rest of my dataset for independent and control variables the program is gonna consider the final observations with one(1) value of my dependent variable. then when i run my regression model the result comes out zero or as omitted variable because the mean of my dependent variable is 1.

so in this case i need combine this file with the firms with zero value.

according to so, how can i combine it where my dependent variable contains two values (1= misstated firm, 0= none).

 

i hope you understand my issue.

No, the data2datastep macro creates a program (.sas) file that contains the runnable code.

When I do this

%data2datastep(dsn=class,lib=sashelp,file=class.sas,obs=10)

I get a file class.sas in my home directory on the SAS server, which contains:

data SASHELP.CLASS;
