Other stuff:

 

Datasets often give us country names without the corresponding country code (ccode).  This makes it a total pain to merge with other datasets.  I’ve written a do file that will automatically fill in the ccode.  To add the country codes, first rename the country variable to “country” (probably unnecessary – it’s likely already named “country”).  Next, add the following to your Stata command line:

 

do http://www.uky.edu/~clthyn2/replace_ccode_country.do

 

The command should generate a new variable called “ccode” with the correct ccodes.  I update the do file every time I see a country spelled a different way.  Please let me know if you find any errors or omissions (clayton.thyne@uky.edu).
