Hi Tanuku,

I don't know of a specific Stata utility to read the entire Area Resource File. If you only need specific values, you can just use the -infix- command to specify the variable type, name, and column locations.
The most recent version of the ARF ASCII code came with a MS Excel file that listed this information. If you don't have that, you should be able to contact Quality Resource Systems and get a copy (they administer the data): http://www.arf.hrsa.gov/contactUs.htm

Hope this helps,

Melissa

>Hello all,

>Is there a Stata utility to read "Area Resource File" (2007 version).  I did search/findit but didn't get any hits.  

>http://www.arf.hrsa.gov releases the ARF file.  I have the asc file but not with any codebook.

>I saw that Emory.edu has already translated the file into Stata format but only for Emory.edu affiliates.
