Hi all,



I have the following four variables, where 1 indicates diagnoses for a particular type of hypertension. As I don't have sufficient number of cases when I take into account my covariates, I now need to combine these four variables to create 1 variable; 0=no
 diagnoses of hypertension, and 1=diagnoses of any type of hypertension (in any of the four variables). Some subjects might have multiple diagnoses. Is there a better and easier way to do this than using the replace command?



I would also like to create a variation of the combined variable such that each subject is entered only one if she has multiple diagnoses to compare it with the other combined variable, where all multiple diagnoses for a subject are inluded.
