st: -cond()- function
I have an integer variable that I would like to collapse into a dichotomous variable. Using the following statement:
.gen cholcat = cond(chol,0,1,9)
produces the same output as:
.gen cholcat = cond(chol,0,1)
The first statement continues to recode "missings" as 1, not 9. In order to capture the missings appropriately, I have to follow each -cond()- statement with a -replace- command.
Am I using the -cond()- function appropriately?
