Dear all,
I need to create a binary variable that equals 1 of one of the variables fammem1, fammem2, fammem3, fammem4, … fammem10 equals 2, and 0 otherwise.#I came up with the following solution:
egen fathliv = anymatch(fammem1 fammem2 … fammem10), v(2)
and it seems to work, but I would like to create a loop rather than listing the ten fammem variables individually.
I tried:
forv i=1/10{
egen fathliv = anymatch(fammem`i'), v(2)
But this gives me an error message and I am not sure why.
I would be very grateful for advice,
Warm regards,
