Is it possible to do it like this

gen Country_Region = group(Country Region), label

and then use reshape wide var (i) (Country Region)

Emne: st: Combining string and numeric variables

Hi, statalisters. I have a panel data set in long form. This panel data set has two variables to identify observations, one for country (eg, UK) and one for region (eg, 11 or M0). I have to transform the dataset into wide form.
Nevertheless, to do this, if I am not mistaken, previously I have to combine these two identifying variables (to generate, eg, values such as UKM0). Does anyone know whether this can be done with Stata? Thanks in advance.

Miguel A.
