01/max = 3 high), gen(pay4) test We can change the name of any variable in the dataset using the command rename. For example, we can give the variable alknbrd a name which is easier to remember: LikesNeighbourhood. We can also change the name of the variable asex to sex: rename alknbrd LikesNeighbourhood rename asex sex The variable apaygu, which is the usual gross monthly wage, is a continuous variable. In some cases we may want to summarise pay in a few categories. For example, we can create a new variable, called payl, that has value 1 (which we will label 'low') if apaygu is less than 200; 2 ('medium') if it is between 201 and 400; and 3 ('high') if it is more than 400.

Since in the PSID the missing values differ across variables, it is good practice always to double-check the codebook. The reasons for missing answers are often relevant for survey methodologists (we will not discuss these issues in this book). If we are not interested in the reason why the variable is missing we can recode all the negative values into Stata system-missing, which is represented by a dot ( . ). 7 shows the two-way tabulation of the two variables alknbrd and asex. The variable label for alknbrd is 'likes present neighbourhood' while the labels of its two values (1 and 2) are 'yes' and 'no', Similarly, the variable label for asex is 'sex' while the labels of its two values (1 and 2) are 'male' and 'female'.

We use the command set more off to show the entire set of results, even if longer than one page, without pausing after each page. This command is useful when we are executing do files and when we are using Stata interactively and want to store all the results appearing in the 'Results' window in a file which can be consulted later. Such files, where all the results that appear on the screen are stored, are called log files. 7. Generally we include the commands to create a new log file at the beginning of our do file, and include the commands to close the log file at the end of our do file.
