I have a syntax question and help would be appreciated. I want to generate a dummy if certain conditions apply, but it does not seem to work as the early dummy is always 0.


gen early=0

if sex==1 & (anypen1==1 | anypen2==1 | anypen3==1 | anypen4==1 | anypen5==1) & age < 65 {



if sex==2 & (anypen1==1 | anypen2==1 | anypen3==1 | anypen4==1 | anypen5==1) & age < 60 {
