They are single quotes. See [U] 21.3.1 (Stata 7 and Stata 8).
do not involve a pair of single quotes! On the left is a backquote, or
backtick -- usually in the northeast corner of the keyboard -- and on
the right is a single quote, usually on the double quote key. If you do
not use the backtick properly, no Stata program will work !
