```HI all,

I have some data to be screened  based on the recording flag (obs).
Some family recorded properly (1) and others not (0).  Th 0 = improper
and 1 = proper

The recording  period starts week1.  All families may not start in the
same week in recording properly an observation,

A  WEEK1 0
A  WEEK1 0
A  WEEK1 0
A  WEEK2 1
A  WEEK2 0
A  WEEK3 1
A  WEEK3 0
B  WEEK1 1
B  WEEK1 0
B  WEEK1 1
B  WEEK2 0
B  WEEK2 0
B  WEEK3 1
B  WEEK3 0
C  WEEK3 0
C  WEEK3 0
C  WEEK4 1
C  WEEK4 1')

Example, in week1  all records of family "A" are 0 (improper), but
starting the week2 they start recording proper (1) records as well.
Then I create a table that shows me the ratio of proper records to the
total records for each family within week. If the ratio is zero and
there is no prior proper recordings for that family then I want to
delete those records.

However,  once any family started showing proper records  as "1"  and
even if in the  the subsequent week the ratio is 0  then I want keep
that record for that family. Example records of week2 for family B

Here is the summary table

WEEK1      WEEK2    WEEK3    WEEK4
A          0            0.5              0.5           .
B       0.33           0                0.5           .
C          .               .                 0            1

>From the above table
For A-  I want exclude all records of week1 and keep the rest. Because
they were not recording it propeller
For B-  Keep all records, as they stated recording properly from the beginning.
For C-  Keep only the week4 records because all records are  1's

Final and desired  result will be

A WEEK2 1
A WEEK2 0
A WEEK3 1
A WEEK3 0
B WEEK1 1
B WEEK1 0
B WEEK1 1
B WEEK2 0
B WEEK2 0
B WEEK3 1
B WEEK3 0
C WEEK4 1
C WEEK4 1

and the summary table looks like as follows

WEEK1  WEEK2  WEEK3  WEEK4
A             .        0.5             0.5        .
B          0.33        0             0.5        .
C               .          .                 .        1
