Yes. You _can_ omit == 1 in this circumstance, but you need not do so if you do not want to. See also FAQ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . True and false in Stata 2/03 What is true and false in Stata? http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/data/trueorfalse.html Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Ekaterina Hertog Thank you again for the advice! Sorry I am a bit confused where can I omit "==1"? The only place where I see "==1" is in these lines: replace mindesinc=7000 if desired_income_above_7000==1 Would it work if I write: replace mindesinc=7000 if desired_income_above_7000 Or did you mean I should omit the "==1" bit when writing to the list?

You can omit the "==1" part, btw. > * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
