Yes, I know this question is not directly related to State program. But I need someone's help to understand the problem. The Ststa code to generate dummy variables is **dummy variable gen pre96=0; replace pre96=1 if year==1986 | year==1987 | year==1988 | year==1989 | year==1990 | year==1991 | year==1992 | year==1993 | year==1994 | year==1995; gen post96=0; replace pos96=1 if year==1996 | year==1997 | year==1998 | year==1999 | year==2000 | year==2001 | year==2002; **interactive term gen pre96s=pre96*smom; gen post96s=post96*smom; Thanks, TaeHun Kim On Thu, 17 Mar 2005 11:20:37 -0500, Daniel Lawson <k95dl01@gmail.com> wrote: > This doesn't sound like a Stata-specific question.
