Hello,
I am almost a total novice, and I am sure there must be an easy (and
basic) way to turn a variable of 1's and 2's into a variable of zeros
and ones. This is in a data frame, but if I could do it with vectors,
that's all I need.
Can someone tell me how?
Thanks so much,
Jen

x-c(1, 2);
y-ifelse(x==1, 1, 0);
