Pageunstack - variable descriptions disappear

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


I downloaded data from penn world table:

when importing the data, using the code

Code: Select all

pagestruct() countrycode @date(year)

i get variable descriptions:
1.PNG (36.5 KiB) Viewed 43 times

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

Code: Select all

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

2.PNG (15.62 KiB) Viewed 43 times

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.
