st: Renaming and logs
I have recently started using STATA and I am attempting to find a
solution to two problems I continue to have.
label define powerpoint 1 "Extremely useful" 2 "Often Useful" 3
"Somewhat useful" 4 "Not very useful" 5 "Not useful at all" 6 "Not
encode powerpointsli~s, gen(powerpoint) label(powerpoint)
recode powerpoint (1 2 3 = 2) (4 5 = 4), gen(powerpoint2)
label values powerpoint2 powerpoint
tab country powerpoint2, row
I am attempting to use my code to compile the results from a survey in
an excel file. The response to one of the series of question includes:
"Extremely useful" "Often Useful" "Somewhat useful" "Not very useful"
"not useful at all" and "Not applicable." The above code represents part
of the overall code.
My goal is to combine the results of Extremely useful, Often Useful, and
Somewhat useful --- and of Not very useful and not useful at all. I
managed to do that, but now I want to re-name powerpoint2 to display the
positive results as Useful and the negative results as Not Useful.
How would I go about relabeling powerpoint2 ? Thank you!
My second question is something I am positive I could find in the manual
if my workplace had been as good to order the manuals. I was creating
logs and I was wondering if there was any way to send the log to
specific directory instead of it just creating the log in the same
Thank you for your time!
