```Dear Miluji,

If I understand correctly, this should get you what you need.

temp1 <-
structure(list(id = 101:115, current_location = structure(c(2L,
8L, 8L, 3L, 6L, 5L, 1L, 2L, 7L, 4L, 2L, 8L, 8L, 3L, 6L), .Label =
c("Austin",
"Boston", "Cambridge", "Durham", "Houston", "Lynn", "New Orleans",
"New York"), class = "factor"), previous_location = structure(c(6L,
2L, 4L, 6L, 7L, 5L, 1L, 3L, 6L, 2L, 6L, 2L, 4L, 6L, 7L), .Label =
c("Atlanta",
"Austin", "Cleveland", "Houston", "New Orleans", "OKC", "Tulsa"
), class = "factor")), class = "data.frame", row.names = c(NA,
-15L))

dcast(temp1, previous_location ~ current_location)
