st: Forvalue and bysort

Dear Statalisters,

I'd like to calculate a scalar "Welfare" for rural and urban using a nested
loop. Let's urb has value 1 for "urban" and 2 for "rural". I tried to use
this code but it seems that scalar may not be combined with by.
Can someone help me?



forvalues i = 1/9 {
forvalues j = 1/9 {	
bysort urb : scalar welfare = w`i'bar*(lnp`i'bar*1.1) +
di welfare
