You can do it, but not I think directly. Here is one way: 

sysuse auto
egen nmake = group(make) 
replace nmake = nmake - 1 
labmask nmake, values(make) 

where -labmask- should be located using -findit-. 

But I can't see that zero-start has any real advantages. Can you name
any?

is it possible, somehow, to
specify stata to start encoding with tha value 0 instead of 1 ?
