You may want to look at -reshape- for a solution...

März 2009 10:10 An: statalist Betreff: st: one row for each individual Dear All, i'm trying to get 1 row for each individual in my dataset. The actual situation of my data: I have 3 rows for each, and the indivv are identifiesd with the variable newID. Anyway, by employing the command: bysort newID: keep if _n==1, I get 1 row for each, but stata randomly select 1 row for every individual in this way causing the loss of relevant info. each indiv has been interv in 3 waves (2004,2005, 2006), for each wave I gen the corresponding categorical variables, which are the lase 36 colums of the dataset. I would be pleased, given that these represent the labour market story of each subject, to get all this info in 1 row. Does anybody know the precise command to get this result?
