I have 4 variables: 1st: Date of onset, 2nd: Date of termination, 3rd: Date of measurement, 4th: measurement. I want to calculate the average of the 4th variable between each period of onset-termination. How can i do it? I think its a bit tricky. Each date of onset has an counterpart date of termination. The same applies for the 3rd and 4th variable.
