Dear Prarkash There are different way you can do same thing on Stata. If your dataset organized like this I suggest to do the following bys hhid: gen numsurvey=_N bys hhid: egen minyear=min(survey_year) gen entry=survey_year==minyear bys hhid: egen maxyear=max(survey_year) gen exit=survey_year==maxyear numsurvey gives the number of times each household appear on the survey entry is 1 if the household appear on the survey at first time and otherwise 0 exit is 1 if the household surveyed at the last time do the label defne for entry and exit variables. label define yesno 1 "Yes" 2 "No" label val entry yesno label val exit yesno if household only survey once entry and exit both get 1 (yes). However you can change the variable way you prefer base on numsurvey variable. Hope this help.
