At the moment I have used the following logic: list responder_status ID if x1==. | x2==. | /// x3==. | x4==. | x5==. | x6==. But I'm not sure if this is correct, so I did the following which I think is. gen miss=0 recode miss 0=1 if x1==. recode miss 0=1 if x2==. recode miss 0=1 if x3==. recode miss 0=1 if x4==. recode miss 0=1 if x5==. recode miss 0=1 if x6==. However is there a more succinct way to write this code, instead of 7 lines? ======================================================= egen miss = rowmiss(x1-x6) Note that in this -egen- function, x1-x6 is a variable list, as opposed the rule for an expression where it means a difference. It does not necessarily mean x1,x2,x3,x4,x5,x6; that depends on what variables come between x1 and x6 in the dataset.
