Emma,

David is right. The global macros FGT0, FGT1 and FGT2 do not exist. -povdeco- saves the results in global macros S_FGT0, S_FGT1 and S_FGT2. With this minor modification your code should work.

Best,
Rafa

I don't have -povdeco- installed, so I am just guessing here, but are
you certain that the global macros $FGT0 etc exist? If $FGT0 is empty,
then the first -replace- command will give the error "if not found
r(111)" as it would interpret the -if- as a variable name rather than an
if clause. Is this the error you got?

Dear all:

I am having trouble with a very simple program (see
below) using povdeco. When I try to retrieve the results for P0, P1, P2,
it tells me that the "if" is not valid. In the archived posts, I find
the same expression used - therefore I can't figure out why it won't
work here. I'd be grateful for any advice.
Many thanks in advance for your help.
best wishes,
Emma


local pline =2000

gen P0=.
gen P1=.
gen P2=.

levels7 sexhead, local (S)
foreach r of local S {
povdeco y_sex [w=expr] if sexhead==`r', pl(`pline')

replace P0=$FGT0 if sexhead == `r'
replace P1=$FGT1 if sexhead == `r'
replace P2=$FGT2 if sexhead == `r'
}

tabdisp sexhead, c(P0, P1, P2)

drop ysexnew y_sex
drop P0 P1 P2
