: Dear Statalisters,
: Thanks for your help.
: I have received a patient dataset of the following format:
: ID    var1    var2    var3    var4QUESTION1    var5RESPONSE1    var6
: var7......
: 1    x1        x2        x3            x4q1            x5r1
: x6        x7 .....
: 1    x1        x2        x3            x4q1            x5r2
: x6        x7 ....  everything is duplicated except Response 2 for
: Question 1  (mtple response issue)
: 1    x1        x2        x3            x4q1            x5r3
: x6        x7......everything the same except Response 3 to Q1
: 1    x1        x2        x3            x4q2            x5r1
: x6        x7 .....everything the same except Q2 & R2
: 1    x1        x2        x3            x4q3            x5r1
: x6        x7 .....everything the same except Q3 & R3
: .....
: 2   x1        x2        x3            x4q1            x5r1
: x6        x7 ...
: 2  x1         x2        x3            x4q2            x5r2
: x6        x7 ...
: 2  x1         x2        x3            x4q1            x5r1
: x6        x7 ...
: ....
: 3  x1         x2        x3            x4q2            x5r1
: x6        x7.....no missing values for Questions not answered
: 3  x1         x2        x3            x4q2            x5r2
: x6        x7.....
: ....
:
: I have read the multiple responses (Cox, drum) and repeated
measures,
: I have no unique ID and so cannot reshape the dataset, I need to
: combine all the responses from all the questions to construct some
: indices and need to have all this info on "one row/ID"; Stata sees
the
: data as duplicates but I cannot drop the observation as the response
: variable is unique.... How do I get into a matrix of unique
: (nonrepeating IDs) by unique variables (even if the rows become very
: long)...There are 11,700 observations (rows)(responses to ~30
: questions) for unique N=242. So I need to collapse the dataset into
: 242 rows with X  columns.
