st: creating variable for "any sibling"

Subject   st: creating variable for "any sibling"
Date   Fri, 1 Feb 2013 12:34:43 -0800 (PST)


I have a household survey data and would like to construct a variable for
"any siblings" and "number of siblings". I have data for each household
member. In columns, I have relation to young adult 1 (YA1), relationship to
YA2, and relationship to YA3. For example, under relationship to YA1 column,
I have "self" and under relationship to YA1 (for the same household) I have
"brother/sister". I hope to create a variable that indicates "1" for the
young adult individual that reported "self" and "1" for the individual who
is the "brother/sister" of that young adult1. 

sort hhid
gen w1h_anysib=0
by hhid: replace w1h_anysib=1 if w1h_reltoya1 == 7

I get "1"s for the individuals who are brother or sister of YA1 however, the
YA1 him/herself does not have the "1" indicator. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!
