Greetings,

I need to create a unique id variable by combining three different numeric variables viz. "district", "house" and "person". "District" has been entered as a four digit number code (1000 to 1500). Each "District" has "house"s numbered 1 to 150 (no zero in front) and each "house" has "person" with numbers ranging from 1 to 12 (again no zero in front). I need the uniqe id variable to merge this dataset with another data file having other information about these particular people.
As members may have figured out by now...I am new not only to this list but to Stata too. I have tried looking for help elsewhere...but the lack of Zeros in "house" and "person" is giving me problems. Please help...

warm regards

Nyima
