Greetings!

I'm scratching my head over the following error message:

. sysuse nlsw88, clear
. gen wt = int(uniform()*10)
. la var south ”Lives in the south”

invalid syntax
r(198);


Even though the Help Label instructions show examples of labels containing spaces, that error message is not reported if I change the command to:
. la var south ”Lives”

I'd appreciate any guidance.

Best wishes,
Michael McCulloch, LAc MPH PhD
