-- Martin Weiss sugested:
> g redundism= zredundab==1|zdismissa==1

Good call, you can expand it to respect missing values in the following
way:

g redundism = zredundab==1|zdismissa==1 if ///
              !missing(zredundab==1,zdismissa)

In the code by Martin they are given the value 0, while in the code by
Maarten they are missing. (Sorry, I could not resist this nice
opportunity to emphasize the difference between my name and Martin...)
