st: RE: Using Value Labels to Label Variables |

There are several ways to tackle this. 1. Don't use -xi:-. Create your dummies upstream, e.g. using -tabulate-. Then their variable labels will be explanatory. 2. Check out -dummieslab- from SSC by P. van Kerm and another. 3. Write a loop to map value labels to variable labels. Given 1 and 2, I won't spell that out here. 4. No doubt others. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Thomas Suppose I have this value label assigned to the variable totavmte_q: totavmte_q_lab: 1 <=Q1 (43.25) 2 Q1 to <=Q2 (64.35) 3 Q2 to <=Q3 (96.54) 4 >Q3 and I want to regress: xi: logistic status i.totavmte_q Stata will nicely create the following dummies: _Itotavmte__2 _Itotavmte__3 _Itotavmte__4 Now I want to label the dummy variables so that they reflect the value labels e.g. . label variable _Itotavmte__2 "Q1 to <=Q2 (64.35)" I am wondering if there is a way to label the dummy variables by way of referencing their associated value labels (these var labels will be used in the contest of the user-written estout program). * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
