Betreff: st: disintegrating categorical variable into independent variables

summarizes current level of education attended by the household head.
it is made up of 1 primary education, 2 secondary education, 3
university education 4 diploma education  could this be tantamount to
create dummies?
I now want to create four variables from these 'grade; variable for
primary education enrollment, secondary education enrollment,
university education enrollment and diploma education enrollment?

Quite elementary, but please assist.
