Dear Statalisters

I have the first four variables in the table below in my dataset, and I
wish to generate the fifth variable. This variable should be such that
it is equal to 1 for all members of a particular household if there is
at least one pensioner in this household. Below is the table with only
two households one of which contains at least one pensioner and I wish
to assign 1 to each member of this household. The other household
doesn't contain any pensioner and I wish to assign 0 to each member of
this household. 

How to do that???
  

  hh_id  |   hh_member | dummy_member_is_pensioner  |
dummy_hh_with_at_least_one_pensioner

     1   |    4        |      0                     |           1
     2   |    1        |      0                     |           0
     2   |    2        |      0                     |           0
     2   |    3        |      0                     |           0
     ... |    ...      |     ...                    |          ...


Thanks.
