st: Using variable label in stata as you would a macro |

Hello all, I am wondering if there is a way in stata to use the labels given to variables as you might a macro. For example, suppose you have a variable "state" where the values are the state names in the US. You turn this into a series of dummy variables then run a series of regressions in a loop such as: foreach var of varlist _Istate_1-_Istate_50 { reg x y outreg if `var'==1, se append } What I'm wondering if there is a way to do this: foreach var of varlist _Istate_1-_Istate_50 { reg x y (some command that gives you the variable label of `var') outreg if `var'==1, se append ctitle(label of `var') } This would give you a spreadsheet where each column is labeled with the relevant state name. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance. ********************************************************** Conner Mullally Ph.D. Candidate Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics University of California, Davis office: 530 752 1048 cell: 530 902 7484 cell: (Lima): 001 511 989813181 email and Skype: ccmullally@ucdavis.edu ********************************************************** Conner Mullally Ph.D. Candidate Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics University of California, Davis office: 530 752 1048 cell: 530 902 7484 cell: (Lima): 001 511 989813181 email and Skype: ccmullally@ucdavis.edu * * 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/
