Hi Sarah, after importing, naics1 was set to str, naics2-8 were set to long, as I said previously, I used File-Import-ASCII data created by spreadsheet, then stata imported my txt file for me, my first observation has non-missing data for naics1 and all missing for naics2-8, I guess that is why stata assigned different types to them.and the log shows command insheet was used. insheet using "C:\Users\Questions\Stata list\I-O table__Cleaned.txt" Best, Rochelle On Fri, Dec 20, 2013 at 6:05 PM, Sarah Edgington <sedging@ucla.edu> wrote: > Rochelle,> The error message isn't because the naicsvariables are missing, it's because naics2 (andpresumably all of naics2-naics8?) are adifferent variable type than naics1. However,reshaping when all but 1 of the variables beingreshaped contain all missing values isn't going to get you what you want.>> It sounds like something is going awry withyour import process. If I understand youcorrectly you're saying that naics2-naics8 aremissing for all observations not just the first two that you show, right?> Are the codes all being read into the naics1variable? That is, is naics1 a string variablecontaining multiple codes separated byspaces? If that's the case you'll want to dropnaics2-naics8 and separate naics1 into multiple variables before reshaping.> -Sarah > > -----Original Message-----> From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu[mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Rongrong Zhang> Sent: Friday, December 20, 2013 2:06 PM > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Subject: Re: st: RE: match variable across two tables > > THANKS!

I don't immediately haveany suggestions because I'm not sure Iunderstand either the exact structure of yourdata or the matching rules you want to follow.>>>>>>>>>>>> You say that if you use exact matchingthat you want I-O number 1111B0 to match withNAICS code 111150. I take it that is an "exactmatch" because you want to drop the trailingzero in the NAICS code. So, since 11115appears in the list of NAICS codes for 1111B0,it would match to 111150 in table 2. This isnot to my mind an "exact match" because itrequires first modifying the NAICS code intable 2 before you can match. To do thatsuccessfully you need to be very clear about what the rule for modification is.>>>>>> Is the rule that if the NAICS code intable 2 has a zero at the end you always dropit? Does it matter how many digits appear before the zero?>>>>>>>>>>>> The next question I have is about thestructure of table 1 as it appears inStata. Do you have a single variable that hasmultiple codes in it? If so, you're probablygoing to have to do some additional processingto that variable before trying to match the two tables.>>>>>>>>>>>> The final thing I was unclear on waswhat you want the final structure of your datato be after matching. How do you want to dealwith entries in table 1 that have multiplematches in table 2? Do you want the resultingdata to contain multiple observations, one foreach of the NAICS codes that the I-O number matches to?>>>>>>>>>>>> Again for the four digit match, you'llwant to be very clear on the rules that make anentry a match. I'm not sure if you're askingfor a match of the first four digits of theNAICS code in table 1 to only the codes intable 2 that are four digitslong. Alternatively perhaps you're looking tomatch observation in table 1 to ALL the entriesin table 2 that share the same first four digits.>>>>>>>>>>>> If you can more precisely describe thestructure of your data as it currently exists,the matching rules you want to follow, and thestructure you want your final data to be in,you'll increase your chances of getting a helpful answer from the list.>>>>>> >>>>>> -S >>>>>> >>>>>> -----Original Message----- >>>>>> From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu >>>>>> [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of >>>>>> Rongrong Zhang >>>>>> Sent: Wednesday, December 18, 2013 11:15 AM >>>>>> To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu >>>>>> Subject: st: match variable across two tables >>>>>> >>>>>> Dear STATALISTER, >>>>>> >>>>>> I have two tables: >>>>>>>>>>>> Table 1 has 3 variables I-O number, I-OName , Related 1997 NAICS codes.>>>>>> >>>>>> Table 2 has 1 variable 1997 NAICS codes. >>>>>> >>>>>> I want to link these two tables based on NAICS code.
