If you just want an indicator of evenness, a concise way is...
gen byte newvar = ~mod(oldvar, 2)

I apologize if this has been addressed previously. I haven't found
anything in the archives, though I feel as though it surely must be there
somewhere. I am wondering if there is a way to create a new variable that
takes on a value if another variable is an even or an odd number. For
example, can you do something like this:
ge newvar = 1 if oldvar is even
If this has made its way thru the list before, perhaps someone can suggest
better search keywords for the archives? Thanks.
