>> Hi,
>> 
>> I am keen to try and create a total sibling variable for data that I have that is currently separated out into four vars:
>> no.of brother-sister in same house older,  
>> no.of brother-sister in same house younger
>> no.of brother-sister outside house older
>> no.of brother-sister outside house younger
> 
>> for each 0-4 = number siblings and -1 is missing questionnaire and -2 is not stated
>> 
>> This is from a longitudinal cohort study and I'm being dense but can't seem to create a variable that gives me the sibling shape of each cohort member - I have used sum, count, total but they're not an accurate portrayal of the siblings that each cohort member has.
>> 
>> What can you recommend?
>> 
>> Thank you
>> Annabel
