I am running a regression model that has 12 variables, and one state variable. For the State variable (numeric), I want to create a Fixed Effect for each State. Thus, I want to include in the model 49 new variables and leave one out as the reference State. How can I create these 49 variables so that I can include them in the model, please? Each oservation should have only one indicator for State. For example, Observation 1 from NY should have all 48 variables equal 0, and equals one for the NY indicator.
I am using SAS Enterprise guide, but can write the code and run it in SAS Base.
