# Labelling dummy variables with underlying variable names

Hey there,

I'm very new to Stata and fairly certain this has a simple solution but i don't seem to find it.

I have a Dataset with 200 different regions and want to create Dummies for each of the regions. I want to label the dummies according to the name of the region.

When doing as below I only get another round of R_1 all the way to R_200 as Dummies. What goes into region in order to not use the numeric labelling but the actual names of the region as a label for the dummies?

levelsof region, local(region)
foreach i of numlist region' {
gen R_i'=region==`i'
}
