Hi everyone,
I need to create dummy or indicator variables (0,1) for a period
variable (years, age) with the following format:

age
4
5
6
7
10
11
14
15

=> d4 d5 d6 d7 d10 and so on... and their respective 0 and ones

It's important that the name of the variable has the age name. When I
use command tab gen, the name of the variable doesn't match with the
age name (age 4 = d4). Is there a loop or repeat command to create
indicator variables?

Thank you.
Regards.
