I have a dataset that has variables of rates, LCI and UCI for a number of regions in addition to a national average (rate, LCI, UCI) so that it looks like this:

rate		LCI		UCI		region
0.9727	0.9583	0.9849	1
0.9713	0.9523	0.9867	2
0.9835	0.9667	0.9971	3
0.9790	0.9741	0.9836	99

What I would like to do is generate a flag beside each row that will flag up entries where they are significantly higher (1) or lower (2) or not significantly different (0) to region 99 - I'm unsure as to the code here and would appreciate any advice. I'm using Stata 11.2. 

Best wishes
