KOUNTRY: Stata module to standardize country names across various datasets

Rafal Raciborski ()

Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics

Abstract: kountry standardizes names of countries from various datasets. For example, the codes 2 (COW code), 111 (IMF), 840 (UN Stats), and the names United States of America, U.S.A., USA, U.S., US, UNITED STATES, etc., lower or upper case, with or without the definite article "the", will all be converted to "United States". The command makes it easier to merge data sets that use different codes and names to identify the same countries. The command is described in an article in Stata Journal, 8:3, 2008, updated in 10:4, 2010.
