Hi

I have created a summed scale of 2 dichotomous items coded originally
0 1.  The new variable now has values ranging from 0 to 2.

Since I am using a survey that I want to create summary measures like
non-self mean or non-self proportions that represent other members of
the respondents strata but excluding the respondent. Eg. I would want
to know the proportion of the respondents strata who hold no negative
attitudes - ie 0 in the summed scale; the proportion who hold only one
of the negative attitudes, ie, 1 in the summed scale as well as those
members of the strata who hold both negative values or 2 in the summed
scale.

Through help received here and from a statafaq article, i have been
able to create similar summary measures for dichotomous items, but i'm
stumped with this 3-category variable, and would appreciate any
assistance.

Thx in advance... EK
