I think this is a way, but certainly there are others much better
encode state, ge(id)
tab id, ge(st)
with your dataset this will give

. tab id, ge(st)

         id |      Freq.     Percent        Cum.
------------+-----------------------------------
         MA |          4       50.00       50.00
         ME |          4       50.00      100.00
------------+-----------------------------------
      Total |          8      100.00

Dear Statalist members,
I have a panel data with each firm (representing a panel) located in a 
particular state in the US.

firmid year state var1 var2 var3..........
0001  1992  ME
0001  1993  ME
0001  1994  ME
0001  1995  ME
0002  1992  MA
0003  1993  MA
0004  1994  MA
0005  1995  MA

How can I generate a state dummy for each observation?
Best,
Alice
