st: generating new vars from old by cutting off a portion off the old
I have a variable that has about 8 characters per observation and I need
to take 2 characters (4th and 5th characters) and generate them as new
variables representing state codes. So for example, the variable has as
one of its value CITNA134. The characters I need to extract are NA, which
will be recoded as State code. How would I go about doing this?
