Re: st: RE: Generating dummies
Many types of "state" data include P.R., the U.S. Virgin Islands, and
other questionable entities. I have some data right now which includes
a "military" state. The armed forces apparently are annexing
something? Or is this a "state" of mind?
I don't believe this maps to any one place (Guantanamo Bay?), but
rather represents foreign based personel. Which is an entirely
different meaning of being in a "state".
