USESOME: Stata module to use subset of Stata dataset
Abstractusesome loads a subset of a Stata dataset into memory. The program is similar to official Stata's use but enhances its functionality in three ways--the user may specify variables that are not to be used; the user may specify variable characteristics instead of variable names; the user may specify variable indices instead of variable names. These enhancements are intended for use with flavors of Stata, where the maximum number of variables allowed in a dataset is rather small--2,047 for Stata IC, 99 for Small Stata.
