Hi Hassan
I think your best option is first to identify those households, and then use
that identification for the subsequent analysis.
To identify you could:
Gen fem45=0
Replace fem45=1 if sex==female & age <=45
Bysort householdid: egen hfem45=max(fem45)
That should identify in your household has any female 45 years old or
Hope this Helps

Dear Statalist,

I am trying to determine the socio-economic factors behind fertility using
British Household Panel Survey. I want to restrict the age group of female I
will be focusing on to maximum 45 years. As I am dealing with households, so
I will be analysing only those households which have <45 years old females.
Can you guide me how I can incorporate this condition in STATA?

Many thanks for your time and I look forward to your kind reply.

Yours sincerely,
Hassan Talal
