This will extract the 1897 data (for instance) in the form that you want: Cases[data,{{y_,_,_},x_}/;y==1897->{y,x}] Steve Luttrell "Adam Getchell" <agetchell at physics.ucdavis.edu> wrote in message news:cvrptk$p0t$1 at smc.vnet.net... > Hello all, > > I have time series data (a lot of it) in a format like: > > {{{1897,1,4},40.37`},{{1897,1,5},40.87`},{{1897,1,6},40.95`},{{1897,1,7}, > 40.87`},{{1897,1,8},40.97`},{{1897,1,11},40.75`},{{1897,1,12}, > 41.4`},{{1897,1,13},41.45`},{{1897,1,14},41.79`},{{1897,1,15}, > 42.27`},{{1897,1,18},42.76`},{{1897,1,19},43.25`},{{1897,1,20}, > 42.78`},{{1897,1,21},42.52`},{{1897,1,22},42.42`}} > > ie the year, then the value, for 100+ years. > > I'd like to construct a correlation matrix so that year values become > columns, e.g. > > 1897 1898 > ========== > Value1 Value 1 > Value 2 Value 2 > ... > > From my long list of {{{date1},value1},{{date2},value2}} > > But I'm not yet sure how to proceed.
