Well, if they share the same values, then the -encode- will lead to a redundancy because technically you would need only one -label- so that

**************
webuse hbp2, clear

forv i =1/5{
clonevar sex`i'=sex
}

encode sex, g(gender)

ds sex?

foreach var in `r(varlist)'{
encode `var', g(gender`var') l(gender)
}

desc
*****************

you can reuse it with the -label- option to -encode-...

I've got 30 different text variables that all have the same possible
values. Is there an easy way to encode all 30 variables using the same
label or do I have to do it manually. Also is it possible, somehow, to
specify stata to start encoding with tha value 0 instead of 1 ?

Best wishes,
Moleps
