st: Creating panel data?
I'm fairly new to Stata (I have Stata 9) and would like to know whether
there is a way to rearrange the following:
WHAT I HAVE: In Data Editor, my first column lists all of the countries
under a "country" variable. Each column after that is a "year" variable
("1984" through "2000") with the appropriate value for each country.
WHAT I NEED: The data needs to be sorted by country and year. In other
words, I should see first column "country," second column "year," and
third column those values.
In other words, I need to create panel data with each country having
multiple entries by year. I wouldn't mind doing this in Excel either,
if that works better.
I would greatly appreciate any help with this!
