Create dummy variable
Dummy variables are often used in regression analysis. Such variables need to be numerical and take the values 0 and 1.
This example shows how to make the dummy variable
mann (male). First, all values are set to 0. The commando
replace then replaces the value 0 with 1 where the variable
kjønn (gender) takes the value ‘1’.
create-dataset demografidata import BEFOLKNING_KJOENN as kjønn //Make a dummy variable for male derived from kjønn generate mann = 0 replace mann = 1 if kjønn == '1'
