> Dear all,
> I have been investigating an effect of a law by using a panel data. This
> panel data consists of three years of interviews on the labour market and
> created some variables among the asked questions. Just like every panel
> this dataset has also id numbers which are characterized as resp in my
> analysis. Moreover, by the help of the two variables h and hp I created
> another variable namely, minder, which is basically hp<h in every year.
> With the help of my instructor I manage to cobine all years and the
> variables with append command.
> My problem now is, I have to generate time dummies for minder for every
> that I have in my analysis. Hence, I need to have minder94, minder96,
> minder98. When I list the data, it seems as below
> resp96 y h hp minder
> 1. 701 1994 32 32 0
> 2. 701 1996 30 24 1
> 3. 1602 1994 . . .
> 4. 1602 1996 25 . .
> 5. 1602 1998 . . .
> 6. 1901 1994 40 40 0
> 7. 1901 1996 30 30 0
> 8. 1901 1998 . . .
> 9. 6101 1994 40 32 1
> 10 6101 1996 . . .
> I think I cannot generate it with the simple gen command, but the other
