I have some ado files that map FIPS state codes into divisions and regions.
Write to me privately if you want them.

Hi,

I would like to create a variable that will group observations based on
values of anther variable. For example, if region is one of 50 states I need
to divide them into bigger geographical areas: east, west, north, south.
Obviously, I can do it by brute force approach, but I hope there is some
magic command that simplifies the procedure.
