```Dear Carlo,
In my situation there are almost 3000 patients for 36 hospitals (36
clusters?). It will be time consuming to apply this solution, will not it?

Dear Gorge,
you are right. The example I sketched considers 10 patients (5 from an
hypothetical hospital in Rome and 5 from an hypothetical hospital in Milan)
and 2 clusters, ie the two hospitals.

HTH and Kindest Regards,
Carlo

Dear Carlo,
I need some clarification about your solution. Should I understand that in
your example there are 10 observations about patients and the number of
clusters is 2.
Best regards

Dear Gorge,
the following code might do what you are asking for:
----------------------------------------------------
set obs 10
g id=_n
g pts_code="Rome_1" in 1
replace pts_code="Rome_2" in 2
replace pts_code="Rome_3" in 3
replace pts_code="Rome_4" in 4
replace pts_code="Rome_5" in 5
replace pts_code="Milan_1" in 6
replace pts_code="Milan_2" in 7
replace pts_code="Milan_3" in 8
replace pts_code="Milan_4" in 9
replace pts_code="Milan_5" in 10
g cluster=1 in 1/5
replace cluster=2 in 6/10
----------------------------------------------------
Kindest Regards,
Carlo

Hello Statalist users,

I need your help on the following issue:

I want to know how to transform a simple database (example: patients
database) to cluster database (example: Hospital database).

Georges
