Thanks a lot for this! How could you do something similar with a variable label, for example:
lab var gender "Subject's gender"
How could I display "Subject's gender" using "disp"; and in addition, how could I define a new string variable that would hold that label?
Thanks for your help!

Betreff: st: Displaying labeled values of variables

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.
