using the -by- or -bysort- might help. since it look like you haven't specified your whole set of conditions in your query I don't think I can simplify all the conditions for you, but you can certainly simplify conditions 1 and 2 with:

bysort nivel sex: gen var2=varold02 if sex==2


I am new in stata and want to generate several new variables, some of them
under  the same conditionals, something like this:

gen var1= varold01  if  ( nivel=1 & area=1 & sex=1)
gen var2=varold02   if ( nivel=1 & area=1 & sex=2)

gen var3= varold03  if  ( nivel=1 & area=2 & sex=1)
gen var2=varold02   if ( nivel=1 & area=2 & sex=2)

gen var4= varold04  if  ( nivel=1 & area=1 )
gen var5=varold05   if ( nivel=1 & area=2 )

I want to know if stata has a command that let me do something like this:

      if nivel=1 & area=1 then do;

                gen var2=varold02   if (sex=2)
                gen var4= varold04

       if nivel=1 and area=2 then do;

               gen var3= varold03  if  (  sex=1)
               gen var2=varold02   if (  sex=2)
               gen var5=varold05

that let me reduce the number of conditionals
