st: many children per mother to one record per child DHS data rewriteSAS do file |

I am current working with Demographic Health Survey Data. This data shows numerous children for each mother. I want to create a database that has one record for each child. I also want to relabel some of the variables, and only keep other relevant variables. David Stifel at Cornell was kind enough share a do file in SAS that does something very similar to what I want to do, but I am having trouble converting this into STATA. The SAS do file is:

array bidx_a{20} bidx_01-bidx_20;

array bord_a{20} bord_01-bord_20;

array b0_a{20} b0_01- b0_20;

array b3_a{20} b3_01- b3_20;

array b4_a{20} b4_01- b4_20;

array b7_a{20} b7_01- b7_20;

array b10_a{20} b10_01- b10_20;

do i=1 to 6 ;

if bidx_a{i}>0 then do;

hcluster = v001;

hhnumber = v002;

mother = v003;

wgt = v005;

monthint = v006;

yearint = v007;

dateint = v008;

mdob = v011;

region = v101;

urban = v102;

bidx = bidx_a{i};

bord = bord_a{i};

twin = b0_a{i};

dob = b3_a{i};

sex = b4_a{i};

aged = b7_a{i};

flag = b10_a{i};

keep caseid hcluster hhnumber mother wgt monthint yearint dateint

mdob region urban bidx bord twin dob sex aged;

if bidx_a{i}>0 then output;

end;

end;

run;

data work1.temp0;

set work1.temp0;

magekdob = (dob - mdob)/12;

age = dateint - dob;

yob = int(dob/12);

run;

proc sort; by hcluster hhnumber mother bidx; run;

proc contents;

proc means;

weight wgt;

title "Bangladesh 1996 (DHS) Mortality Data of Kids";

run;

libname trn1 xport '/home4/ds52/aadata/bd96mort.v5x'; **;

proc copy in=work1 out=trn1;

select temp0;

run;

endsas;

So, can somebody explain, as simply and in as much detail as possible, how this can be written as a STATA do file.
