Hi Martin, Thanks for your answer. What surprised me is that the documentation says: "as stated earlier, Stata does not mind if a nonexistent value label is associated with a variable. When Stata uses such a variable, it simply acts as if it is not labeled;" Data management (stata9), p293. If I am understanding the sentence above correctly, the behavior discussed should not happen.(and one solution is to label the variable properly). Hope this helps Isabelle -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Martin Weiss Sent: Thursday, October 29, 2009 2:14 PM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: AW: label problem in sts test <> This problem can be reproduced via ************* webuse stan3, clear stset, noshow sts test posttran codebook postt la def yesno 0 "no" 1 "yes" label values posttran yesno la drop yesno sts test posttran ************* Question: What is surprising about that? Depriving a variable of its -label- is never a good idea, I would think... And Isabel already has a remedy available to her, as she mentioned herself...

Oktober 2009 13:57 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: st: label problem in sts test Dear Stata-listers, For a survival analysis, I made a dataset where I had assigned a label To a variable, but, by mistake, the label was not defined. I think that this situation produced an error message in the command sts test. sts test DV failure _d: diaggrp analysis time _t: (DateOfFup-origin)/365.25 origin: time fdato exit on or before: diaggrp==10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 110 120 130 140 time mdy(12, 1, 2006) id: pnr value label YesNoLbl not found r(111); . label list Is this expected? Have others met this situation? (Note that I fixed my problem by assigning the label as it should have been in the first place. ) Thank you for your comments Isabelle Deltour * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
