Yes.

As a proof this would be fallacious. I'm guessing from context that -oldvar- consists of integers only.

gen odd = mod(oldvar,2)
Rationale: if the remainder on dividing -oldvar- by 2 is 1, then -oldvar- is odd; otherwise it is even.

Hi,
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.
