I have a variable called hhincome in my data set which has a value
label of hhincomelbl. However, hhincomelbl doesn't actually exist as
far as I can tell. I cannot drop it, in any case.

What I want/need to do is get rid of the value label hhincomelbl. In
other words, I want hhincome to have NO value label whatsoever.

How can I accomplish this?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The command to do that is called _strip_labels, and it is as yet "undocumented".


To learn about it, type:

help _strip_labels

or

help undocumented

at the command line.
