Hello. I am using Stata 9. I have what seems like a simple coding
problem but can't figure it out (I'm a relatively new Stata user). I
believe the solution lies in the foreach/forvalues commands, but can't
seem to come up with a solution.

I need to recode a person-level variable based on whether other people
in the household have the same characteristic. Specifically, I want to
recode the variable hh_3 with the value of 1 (1=the person lives in a
three-generational household) if anyone in the household already has
hh_3=1. I want to loop through the whole dataset.


hh_id   person_id   hh_3

4003     01             0
4003     02             1
4003     03             0

4004     01             0
4004     02             1
4004     03             1

Thank you for your help.
Robin
