A bit of a basic question...
say gender is a 0/1 (binary) variable with label sexlab where 0 = "Male" and 1 = "Female"
if I want to display this variable for observation i, I type:
di gender[i]
this will then display a 0 or 1
How could I change this to display it's 'labeled' value (i.e. "Male" or "Female") also, how can I define a new string variable that contains the 'labeled' values of gender?
Thanks a lot for your help.
