Hello Sami,

One possible alternative is to use the Stata module wbopendata, which
does have a reshape option embeded. All you have to do is to chose for
the data to be displayed in the long format (as oppose to the wide
default format).

Notice that all WDI indicators are accessible through this module
directly into Stata.

For more information type:

ssc install wbopendata

help wbopendata


wbopendata, language(en - English) indicator( long clear

wbopendata, language(en - English) topics(2 - Aid Effectiveness) long
