What is "it" that you want to do?
I have a household survey. I want to obtain data on the labour force
which is subcategorized by employed (when pobpcoac equals 2) and
unemployed (when pobpcoac equals 3 or 4 or 5), <14 years old (when
pobpcoac equals 1) and inactive population (when pobpcoac is between 6
and 11) by sex and chief or not of the house.

If you want just to get totals of variables, there is a command called -total-.
I want to get totals of variables under some restrictions.

Otherwise, there is little point in filling variables with constants,
unless you really >need those variables later.

If you really do, look at -foreach- as a way of looping over
variables. -search >foreach- will indicate sources of tutorials.

I'm just beginning to learn Stata.

Your variable name structure makes looping a little difficult.
I don't care about names, I just want to obtaing employed, unemployed,
and inactive population.

Putting "indice" inside each variable name is awkward.
Do you know spanish?

Are there a easier way of do it?

egen desocupados_indice  =  anycount (pobpcoac), values(3 4 5)

egen byte desocupados_indice_man = anycount(pobpcoac) if
e1==1, values(3 4 5)

egen byte desocupados_indice_man_jefe = anycount(pobpcoac) if e1==1 &
e3==1, values(3 4 5)

egen byte desocupados_indice_man_no_jefe = anycount(pobpcoac) if e1==1
& e3!=1, values(3 4 5)

egen byte desocupados_indice_woman = anycount(pobpcoac) if
e1==2, values(3 4 5)

egen byte desocupados_indice_woman_jefe = anycount(pobpcoac) if e1==2
& e3==1, values(3 4 5)

e1==2 & e3!=1, values(3 4 5)

egen desocupados = total(desocupados_indice)
