First of all, I am sure that mkmat stores the values correctly, but I dont know in which way it stores them.

All I want to do is creating a matrix from a variable of my dataset (even only 1xT format). However if I use mkmat, matrix list does not yield the original values of my variable (as you can see below). Since I would like to do some calculations with the created matrix, I would like to check whether the matrix contains the correct values.


mkmat Ticker, matrix(X)

. matrix list X

X[9,1]
    Ticker
r1       8
r2       9
r3       2
r4       1
r5       5
r6       4
r7       7
r8       3
r9       6
