We can't comment on your code because you don't give any.

The -egen- function -anycount()- appears to be what you want.

If your real question is how it works you can inspect its insides by e.g.

. viewsource _gcount.ado

What I would like to do is create a loop that generates a variable equal to the number of months where the value equals 1 (or 0 or 3 etc). The problem is, every time I create a loop it replaces the value for ALL the observations, but I really just want to know for each observation how many months the value is set to a certain number.
