Dear Statalisters,

for a regression, I need a large set of dummies for controlling for
individual fixed effects. This can easily be done by -tab VAR,
gen(NEWVAR)-. Of course, lots of variables are created just for a
single regression.

My question: is there a way to tell Stata that it should include a
dummy for each value of a certain variable without having to create a
single dummy for each value? In my understanding, this would be
similar to the use of lagged variables where you type -L.VAR-

Kind regards,

Jan
