and then doing it in 1 step:

bysort hhid: drop if _N==1

Scott Merryman wrote:
bysort hhid: gen num = _N
drop if num == 1
drop num

where, in this case, _N is the number of observations for each group (for
more helpful advice see Nick Cox's "Speaking Stata:  How to move step by:

Hope this helps,
Scott
