Thank you. I used 

local shock "__31002 __31003 __31004 __31005a __31006a __31007 __31008
__31009 __31010 __31011 __31012a"
local miss "type time sev inc ass idio cop1 cop2 cop3 exp recov"

loc i 1

foreach level of local miss{
	local nextlevel "`:word `i' of `shock''"
	// di "`nextlevel'"
		gen `level'_un =(`nextlevel' == .a)
		gen `level'_uncl = (`nextlevel' == 90 | `nextlevel' == .b)
		gen `level'_miss = (`nextlevel' ==.)
		loc ++i
}

and it worked out fine. Altough the command might be a lot more complex, it saves a lot of time and lines in the do-file. Is it not recommendable to use it then?
