I have done similar operations, so your problem looks familiar. But, if
you could explain the structure in greater detail, then I/we might better
be able to help. Do you have a single dataset, or multiple (such as one
for person and one for household)? And where is the education variable found?
I am trying to create variables for parents' education and age based on
parents and kids who live in the same household. The only question that
relates the individuals' within a household is "the relationship to the
head of household". Therefore, I have been unable to use the method
described in STATA's FAQs.
Basically, I am trying to create parents education and age variables for
all possible parent child pairs. The possibilities are:
Head/ spouse +resident parents (grandparents/in laws)
Resident child+ Head/Spouse (mother, father)
I'd appreciate your suggestions and advice on this. Thank you.
As I mentioned, this looks familiar. Is this possibly the Panel Study of
Income Dynamics, or the Current Population Survey (U.S. Census) ?
