XDATELIST: Stata module to create ascending numeric lists of dates
Abstractxdatelist creates a numeric list of dates bounded by a string-format first and last date and spaced by a given number of time units (eg weeks, months, quarters or years). It is similar to the numlist command, and returns the numeric dates in the result r(numlist). Optionally, datelist also returns a list of formatted string dates in the result r(strlist). The program is useful if the list of dates is separated by unequal numbers of days (because months and years vary in length). The program is written in Stata Version 7 and was previously circulated as datelist, a name that has been taken over by StataCorp.
