Suppose I have 5 states and I want to count the number of children in each 
state. How can I do this without generating a new variable. If I do

by state: count if child==1

then r(N) only stores the last state's result.

Subject: using the max command

I have a variable for which I need the maximum element. So, I typed:

egen element=max(var5)

Now, I need to use this value in a for-loop

foreach i=1(1)element {

but that didn't work. So, then I tried 

foreach i=1(1)element[1] {                  

to try to pick off the first element of the vector, but that didn't work,
