Dear StataListers,

I have used -stset- and then -stsplit- on my (large) datasets:

Stsplit riskintvl, at (0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35)

Using -tab- on the created variable riskintvl gives :

Risk     |
Interval |   Freq
------------------
     0   |   .....
     5   |   .....
    10   |   .....
    15   |   .....
    20   |   .....
    25   |   .....
    30   |   .....
    35   |   .....

Is there any way that I can automatically produce labels for the values
of riskintvl that encompass the range of values within each cell
(value[n] - (1-value[n+1]) i.e

0-4, 5-9, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-

I would be useful to do this for any definition of variables produced
using -stsplit-

Best wishes,

Dave
