Nick and Maarten already pointed to -egen- as a possible solution.

Aside from your question I would like to add, that expressions like

if cond3==1 & age>=15 & age<=64 & dipind==1 & hours>20 & hours<55 &

may in a lot of cases be easier written using -inlist() and
-inrange()- function as in

if  inlist(1, cond3, dipind, occupation) & inrange(age, 15, 64) &
inrange(hours, 20, 55)

Note however that -inrange(z, a, b)- returns one if a <= z <= b.
