I have 15 data sets that I want to take specific observations from and create a new data structure with them. Rather than doing all of this by hand, I am trying to make a function that will do it for me. This is what I have thus far:

As I wrote in the comments above, I am running into trouble turning each iteration into a new data structure that has a unique name. I know what I have is definitely not the way to do it but I don't have the foggiest of how to do it. For example, I want to have a data structure called make_8 that has all of the observations for which MAKE == 8 in the fars84:fars96 data sets, similarly for make_9 etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Code:

```
function(){
coding <- 7
for (i in 7:99){
temp84<-subset(fars84, MAKE == coding) # Here I take the original data
temp85<-subset(fars85, MAKE == coding) # structure (farsxx) and grab the
temp86<-subset(fars86, MAKE == coding) # observations of interest.
temp87<-subset(fars87, MAKE == coding)
temp88<-subset(fars88, MAKE == coding)
temp89<-subset(fars89, MAKE == coding)
temp90<-subset(fars90, MAKE == coding)
temp91<-subset(fars91, MAKE == coding)
temp92<-subset(fars92, MAKE == coding)
temp93<-subset(fars93, MAKE == coding)
temp94<-subset(fars94, MAKE == coding)
temp95<-subset(fars95, MAKE == coding)
temp96<-subset(fars96, MAKE == coding)
ttemp84<-temp84[vars] #this is just formatting because each fars data
ttemp85<-temp85[vars] #structure has different variable dimensions
ttemp86<-temp86[vars]
ttemp87<-temp87[vars]
ttemp88<-temp88[vars]
ttemp89<-temp89[vars]
ttemp90<-temp90[vars]
ttemp91<-temp91[vars]
ttemp92<-temp92[vars]
ttemp93<-temp93[vars]
ttemp94<-temp94[vars]
ttemp95<-temp95[vars]
ttemp96<-temp96[vars]
make_[i] <<- rbind(ttemp84,ttemp85,ttemp86,ttemp87,ttemp88,ttemp89,ttemp90,ttemp91,ttemp92,ttemp93,ttemp94,ttemp95,ttemp96)
#Here is where I am having trouble, I want to make
#a new data structure for every iteration of the for
#loop and have it called make_i for each iteration of i
coding <- coding+1
}
}
```

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
