I understand this as follows: Suppose variable -x- has values 11, 12, 13, ... and value labels "A", "B", "C", .... You want -y- to have values 111, 112, 113, ... and the corresponding value labels. Try gen y = 100 + x labmask y, values(x) decode Here -labmask- is in -labutil- on SSC. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Jia Xiangping A variable in int storage type, reflecting different regions. label region code value 11 A 12 B 13 C 21 D 22 E 23 F 31 G 32 H Now I want to generate a new variable with a prefix "1" denoting the country code. But the variable still carry the codes. 111 A 112 B 113 C 121 D 122 E 123 F 131 G How shall I do that with -recode-? Or there are some other commands for that? * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
