Abstract.   Mata is Stata’s matrix language. In the Mata Matters column, we show how Mata can be used interactively to solve problems and as a programming language to add new features to Stata. In this quarter’s column, we continue to explore the handling of Stata datasets in Mata and focus on creating new variables.
