Dear STATA-lister,
I am preparing database in EpiData then to move it into STATA. I will
be reviewing patients' records over different visits time.
Would it better to design it as relational database if later on I can
rearrange observations* in rows using STATA.
or
better to enter every observation* as new records?



*New observation = new visit for the same patient



Thank you in advance and best regards
ziad
