Dear colleagues, I have a probably basic question, but to which I could not find a satisfactory answer: I have a categorical variable for which different values carry different labels, and I would like to see which value corresponds to which label. Using the -tab varname- command, I can see all labels, and using -tab varname, nolabel- I can see all values, but since the list of possible values/labels is long, I'd like to see both at the same time. The only way I've been able to do this so far is to browse the variable, which however seems rather ineffiecient as well. Is there a better command or tab option to do this? Thanks, Jen * * 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/
