Hi all,

I'm using Stata 11.2, and am having a little trouble with -reshape-.

I have a dataset with data as such:

year	age 	Males	age	mmx	mqx	mlx		mdx	  mex		Females	fmx	fqx	flx		fdx	fex
1982	0.00	Males	0.00	0.01	0.01	100000.00	1281.70  70.81	Females	0.01	0.01	100000.00	994. 76.80

I want to set the data up so that I have:

Year Sex 	age mx 	qx 	lx 		dx 		ex
1982 Males	0   0.01 	0.01 	100000.00	1281.70  	70.81
1982 Females0   0.01	0.01	100000.00	994.0	 	76.80

I've been trawling a few bits of code that I have used in the past and not finding a solution:


g id=_n
reshape long m f, i(id age year) string


But this gives this output:

id	age	year	_j	m		f
1	0	1982	dx	1281.7	994.7
1	0	1982	ex	70.81		76.8
1	0	1982	lx	100000	100000
1	0	1982	mx	.0129		.009997
1	0	1982	qx	.012817	.009947

I'm sure I probably need another -reshape- around _j

Best wishes

Tim
