st: Another reshape wide question
Thanks for all the responses to my previous question. One other one:
Will Stata let me "reshape" some variables wide and not others (the
ones that are time invariant and hence missing in observations 2 and 3
for each individiual)? When I try to do this, it tells me that those
variables are not constant for each person.
