I'm working on creating a variable that is an instrument score. . . the only issue is that some of the questions are weighted differently than others. I'm not sure how to code for it in STATA.
 
This is the way the scale is scored (19 questions). First, you total the score for 1-19. Then, if they answered "yes" to #2, you add 4pts. If yes to #3, add 3 pts. If yes to #4, add 3 pts. If yes to #5, add 2 pts. If yes to #6, add 2pts. If yes to #7, add 2 pts. If yes to #8, add 1 pt. If yes to 9, add 1 pt. If yes to #3a (not in the original totaling), subtract 3 pts. The final result after all these adjustments and weights is the total score. 
  
Any advice would be very welcome!
