I think Steven's suggestion might not catch every HH with someone covered by public insurance (suppose the first person in the HH is not covered by public insurance, but the second person is, for example). If SS1inHH is an indicator of how many people in the HH are covered by public insurance, as it appears to be from the original posting, then the following modification to Steven's code may work: bysort HH: ge tag = (_n==1) /* or use -egen- tag function */ count SS1inHH if (tag==1 & SS1inHH>=1).

If I understand you correctly you have calculated the vble you want (SS1inHH), but have repeated observations per household (idvar = HH). Why not tag one observation per household and then do the count you want selecting the tagged obs? Something like the following: bysort HH: ge tag = (_n==1) /* or use -egen- tag function */ count SS1inHH if tag Stephen ---------------------- Professor Stephen P.
