If I have a database like this:

id_place        id_person
1       1
1       2

2       4

3       7
3       8
3       9
       
3000    200000

Is there any fast way to generate a dummy for every of the 3.000 id_place
I am not sure I understand the question, but perhaps you want something like

tab id_place, gen(idpl)

See help tabulate oneway

If that isn't what you want, maybe you could give examples of when cases should be coded 1 as opposed to 0.
