You can do this by producing a string variable, but I doubt that's what you want. I guess that you want to do matrix algebra, for which there is a limited -matrix- language in Stata and a much more versatile matrix-centred language in Mata. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Martin Pszczola I am wondering if it is possible to take two columns of values (X and Y) and combine them into one, new variable that is X, Y? For example, say I have 5 variables for X and Y each. X=1 0 1 1 1 Y=0 0 1 1 1 and I want to create a new variable X,Y= 1,0 0,0 1,1 1,1 1,1. * * 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/
