Hi everyone,
I am using the AA legal case database. Of the 222 thousands observation I get from the database, 158,518 of of them has missing value in the variable company_fkey. It’s three fourth of the total observations.
Can anyone shed some light on why I get this result?

Thanks for your help in advance!

hi Claire,

I’ve not used that dataset before. I have posted your question to the Google group and will post any replies here.

Best,

Joost
