August 2010 22:28 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: Creating an X,Y variable from X and Y columns Hi; 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. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
