The existence of R code implies that Mahbubeh could translate that
code into Stata. But in general the existence of code in any other
language is no guarantee that similar code exists in Stata, or vice
versa. That's particularly so in tendentious territory such as here,
in which some users appear to want some white magic to convert
categorcal into continuous, regardless of the information content of
the data.
