Dear Statalist members,

I have the following question.
I have a dataset of the form:

year  italy   france  germany  ...   ...   ... 
1980  209      349     256
1981  567      235     980
1982  129      567     100
...

where the numerical values indicate some expenditure levels. I would like to transfor this dataset into a panel creating the new variable "Expenditure", so that that dataset look like:

expenditure  year  country
    280       1980  italy
    567       1981  italy
    129       1982  italy
    349       1980  france
    235       1981  france
    567       1982  france
    256       1980  germany
    980       1981  germany
    100       1982  germany
.....

any idea on how I can do this?
thank you in advance for any help
