        4/05    How do I create variables summarizing for each
                individual properties of the other members of a
                group?
                http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/data/members.html


Assuming

householdid  is_head is_marriedtohead

bysort householdid : egen spousestuff = total(stuff * is_married_to_head)

etc.

Techniques in this territory are discussed in my Speaking Stata column
in SJ 11(2), due out about June.
