The original example that you sent was in the long format:

> brkdn(intervals~country,jymint.df,num.desc=c("mean","median"))

Breakdown of intervals by country

     Level       mean     median
        au       0.01          0
        br      -0.07          1
        cn      -0.32          2
        in       0.31         -1
        us       -0.4          7

> head(jymint.df,20)
country intervals au1 au 65 au2 au -54 au3 au 27 au4 au -35 au5 au 23 au6 au 29 au7 au -4 au8 au -49 au9 au 42 au10 au -48 au11 au 51 au12 au 27 au13 au -11 au14 au 0 au15 au -37 au16 au 33 au17 au -32 au18 au -12

It was not clear exactly how you wanted to come up with the intervals, but if you want to do them by country, then the logical place to start is the long format. Can you provide and example of exactly what you would be doing with the data to get the intervals. It is hard to tell from a "word" description what type of data transformations you would like to do. Take a small subset of the data and show what the before/after objects might look like. mailing list PLEASE do read the posting guide and provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.
