I am trying to reshape a panel data set and am sure
there is a more efficient way than what I've tried so
far and was hoping someone could help. 

Let's say I have seven variables, an "id", three
income variables (inc80, inc81, inc82) and three
education variables (ed80, ed81, ed82). The way I've
been reshaping a data set like this is to perform a
reshape, save the file, do another reshape and save
that file, and then merge the two together by "id". Is
there a way to reshape the entire data set in one
step?

Thanks,
jon
