Dear Statalist,

in the survey I am using the head of household gives info about every member
of  the household. I have created a variable via egen that accounts for the
number of children within the family. How do "fill in" for the rest of the
family, i.e. family 3 has 1 child and I want observation 5 and 6 to be equal
to 1, for example.

               family     children        
       1.         1          0          
       2.         2          0          
       3.         2          0           
       4.         2          0           
       5.         3          1          
       6.         3          0           

       7.         4          0           
       8.         4          2      

Thanks a lot,
