<> Have you had a look at -split-? If the thing is not a -string- yet, you can turn it into one via -string()-, on the fly... HTH Martin -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- Von: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Im Auftrag von Steinar Fossedal Gesendet: Sonntag, 4. Oktober 2009 08:46 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: st: Return a specific bit from integer variable Hello again, listers! I have imported an 8-bit integer variable where each bit represents a flag telling me if some property of the observation is true or false. E.g. the number 8 in binary format is 00001000, while 10 would be 00001010. Bit nr. 4 from the left tells me if a car is delivered or not, while the second to the right tells me if it's paid or not. So 8 = car is delivered but not paid, 2 = paid but not delivered, 10 = paid and delivered, etc. I need to split this information into 8 dummyvariables so they can be used to segment my data. Does there exist a fairly smooth way to do this in Stata?
