Dear all,

I have an interval variable v1 with values 1,1,15,15, 47, 47, etc. and I want to recode it into a rank variable v2 so that 1=1, 15=2, 47=3, etc. Is there any simple way to do this automatically? I have tried -egen rank, track-, but it returns v3.

    +------------+
    | v1  v2  v3 |
    |------------|
 1. | 1   1   1  |
 2. | 1   1   1  |
3. | 15 2 3 | 4. | 15 2 3 | 5. | 47 3 5 | 6. | 47 3 5 |
    +------------+

Many thanks!
