Thanks Muchly...

stpiece is designed to estimate a piecewise constant model for specified 
intervals of the time at risk - or "analysis time" as Stata calls it -- in 
other words the time variable you specify with stset, including any origin 
time declarations etc.  If your analysis time is AGE, then you just need to 
stset with that and run stpiece.

If you want to include age as an additional covariate (but not as a measure 
of time at risk) in a piecewise fashion (i.e., with dummies for intervals), 
look at stsplit, which will split the spells at the right points.  You can 
then create the dummies and run stpiece.

Hope this helps.
