st: Simple loop problem? |

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.
