1hello everyone, I am doing research paper and I need to select firm year observations rather than month year observation

 

 No.         company ID       announcement date

   1                0                             5/2/2014

   2                0                             7/9/2014

   3                0                             1/4/2015

   4               1                             2/4/2013

   5               1                             4/8/2013

   6               1                             4/24/2013

   7                2                             2/6/2015

   8                2                             2/8/2016

 

as long as firms send announcements in a given year, the observation is included in the new sample. So I need to select No. 2, 3, 6, 7,8. How could I do it? I very appreciate your help.

  /*  create table want as*/
  select *
    from have
      group by company_id, year(announcement_date)
        having max(announcement_date)=announcement_date
  ;
quit;
