Shikha,

reshape long person age working, i(hhid) j(personid)
egen numadultwork = sum((work==1)*(age>17 & !mi(age))), by(hhid)
* Assuming you want to go back to wide format (though I don't see why):
reshape wide person age working, i(hhid) j(personid)

HTH,

- Elan

Hi,

I want to estimate how many working adults are in each household. The
data is in wide format. Adult is defined as age >17 and working info
is coded as 1/0.

hhid peson1-person11  age1-age11 working1-working11

Thanks,
Shikha
