Hi

I believe there is an easy way to treat a nominal variable as a set of dummies
in a glm-command.

Let's say i have the following: glm Y X1 X2 X3, family(binom) link(logit)

and the X3-variable is a numeric categorical variable, which have to be treaten
as a set of dummies.

Off cause I  can create 4 new dummies, and use those instead of the X3, but i
think there is an easier way of doing that?

Best regards
Pete
