Thanks Chamara and Nick

Nick, I am providing the id of first ten household surveyed in 1997
and 2002 below.

hhid	survey_year	entry	exit
181004	1997		
181007	1997		
181113	1997		
181801	1997		
182003	1997		
182601	1997		
182615	1997		
182711	1997		
182716	1997		yes
182803	1997		yes
181001	2002	yes	
181004	2002		
181007	2002		
181113	2002		
181801	2002		
182003	2002		
182201	2002	yes	
182601	2002		
182615	2002		
182711	2002		

Now if you look at the id, household no 181001 and 182201 were not
part of 1997 survey household no 182716 and 182803 did not
participated in the 2002 survey.

My interest is first to generate one variable which identifies
households participated in all the survey; second variable identifying
new household in the survey and finally third variable identifying
household not participated in survey.
There are two more rounds of data which I am extracting still.

I hope I have made progress in expressing my query.
