I have data in a layout that is new to me and I'm stuck on how to reshape it to what I need. Worse, I feel like I'm missing something obvious. Any help would be much appreciated.

The data is in this layout (with fictional data)

COUNTRY DATA_SERIES YR1960 YR1961 YR1962
Argentina GDP 5 7 9
Argentina Population 10 8 5
Brazil GDP 1 9 10
Brazil Population 5 35 12

I would like to get it into this format:

COUNTRY YEAR GDP POPULATION
Argentina 1960 5 10
Argentina 1961 7 8
...
Brazil 1960 1 5
Brazil 1961 9 35
etc.

It's the "DATA_SERIES" variable in the original data that is really throwing me. I'm fairly comfortable with plain vanilla "reshape". Thank you in advance for any help.
