DUPS: Stata module to identify and optionally remove duplicate observations
Abstractdups provides information about unique and duplicate observations in the dataset and, optionally, drops all duplicate observations. varlist is an optional variable list that determines which observations are duplicates (observations must match exactly on all variables in the list to be duplicates). If no varlist is given, then all variables in the dataset are used to determine duplicates. drop is a command line option that causes duplicate observations to be dropped from the dataset. Both terse and verbose options are available to modify the detail in the default output; terse gives bare minimum information; verbose lists detailed information about duplicate observations. This is version 1.0.3 of the software.
