I want to reshape the following data to make it panel:

ID status_1997january status_1997february . . . status_2010december

Is there any way to do this? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You could try something like the following.

    reshape long status, i(ID) j(discard) string
    generate int yearmonth = monthly(substr(discard, 2, .), "YM")
    format yearmonth %tm
    drop discard
