Dear Nick,
I looked at what you put together on Stata faqs
http://stata.com/support/faqs/data/members.html
so could you may be help me in this.
I have one dataset so I don't need to merge but to separate members of
household out but then be able to run a
reg income ageofwife ageofhusband schoolingofwife fe
This is how I defined

gen wife=0
replace wife=1 if  ms==2 & sex==1 & head==2

[ms is marital status, taking value 2 if married
sex is gender, taking value 1 if female
head is the relationship to hh head, taking value 2 if wife]

gen husband=0
replace husband=1 if  ms==2 & sex==1 & head==1

I have one dataset so I don't need to merge but to separate members of
household out but then be able to run an equation like:

reg income ageofwife ageofhusband schoolingofwife schoolingofhusband

I know something is wrong with my definition above because I get 0
observation when I run the regression.

Thank you,
Nirina
