Pageunstack - variable descriptions disappear

Postby tvonbrasch » Sun Jan 07, 2018 3:58 pm

Hi

I downloaded data from penn world table: https://www.rug.nl/ggdc/productivity/pwt/

when importing the data, using the code

Code: Select all

wfopen http://www.rug.nl/ggdc/docs/pwt90.dta
pagestruct() countrycode @date(year)

i get variable descriptions:

however, if i unstack the page, all variable descriptions disappear....

Code: Select all

pageunstack(namepat=*_?,page=unstacked) countrycode dateid

How can I keep the description of the variables after having used the pageunstack command?

Can't, unfortunately. You'll have to manually copy them.
