Dear Alejandra
Try using an if statement. So for example:
gen province=a if (city=="b"|city=="c"|city=="d")
replace province=b if (city=="e"|city=="f"|city=="g")
I know it's slightly tedious, esp if you have several cities/provinces. Perhaps someone else can come up with a quicker way to do it.

Dear Statalits,
In my database I have a variable, called "city" which represent firms'
main base. It is a string variable that I've already encoded in an
I have a lot of other information about the firms and I need to work at a
more aggregated level, for instance "province", could you please tell me
how to assign different cities to one province?
Thanks in advance.
Best regards,
