Dear Statalist.

I am working with a dataset on disabled/not disabled children including all the children's siblings/stepsiblings and their parents.

The goal is to group the id'ed children into groups w. siblings and step-siblings to see the average number of step-siblings etc. in families w. a disabled child and families w. a non-disabled child.

Below you can see a small example, I have about 450.000 children id'ed.

As you can see below In the illustration I tried grouping the families into groups by mother and father by using group(m_id) to give them a sort of family_id. But I can't quite move on from here. So in short; I am looking to group all 450.000 children into groups of siblings/step-siblings. Each child should have the same new familyid as all of its siblings/stepsiblings. But that should make some of the respondents appear in several family groupings. How do I deal with this kind of "cross-grouping"?

I would greatly appreciate your comments.

Tinne
