I tried to do it myself, but didn't succeed, so I need help.
I have a data set with dlots of variables.
ID, age, ger, fr, ital, and a few more
ger, fr, ital stand for countries, Germany, France and Italy and are either 0 or 1 if the subjects is German, its a 1, if not a 0
I want to generate a new variable origin, with the values "Germany", "France" and "Italy"
So if ger=1 the new variables value should be Germany.
I tried gen and egen, but the best I could do is generate origin and give it numeric values from 0 to 3.
