Subject   st: creating unique identifier values
Date   Wed, 08 Mar 2006 20:57:53 -0500

I am entering in some data manually and I would like to be able to quickly insert unique numeric identifiers which represent 26 individual subjects each with 35 attributes.

The values for the individual identifiers look like this:

subject 1 with 1-35 attributes = 11,12,13,14,....110,111,112...120,121,122...130,131,132,133,134,135
subject 2 with 1-35 attributes = 21,22,23,24,....210,211,212...220,221,222...230,231,232,233,234,235
subject 3 with 1-35 attributes = 31,32,33,34.....310,311,312...320,321,322...330,331,332,333,334,335

etc. to subject 26 w/ 1-35 attributes...261,262,263

These values will be manually inputted in one column under varname (obs) in ascending order of subject number(s) and attribute number(s).

obs
11
12
13
14
.etc
.etc
110
111
112
.etc
.etc
.etc
21
22
23
24
25
.etc
.etc
.etc

I'm wondering if there is Stata listmember that could generate these values via Stata coding and would be willing to share that information.

Thank you!
Suzy
