Here's an example:
> id <- c(17,17,17,18,18,18,19,19,19,20,20,20,21,21,21,22,22,22,23,23,23,24,
> 24,24,25,25,25,26,26,26)
> age <- rep(c(30,36,42),10)
> outcome <-
> c(12,17,10,5,5,2,NA,NA,NA,8,6,5,11,13,10,15,11,15,13,NA,9,0,0,0,20,

Okay, I checked the example, and I see what you mean. Is there a way to
compute an average trajectory (i.e., a line that represents the averages of
all the other lines) and make that line red? Obviously, I'm fairly new to
this in general, so any guidance would be helpful.
