I need some help understanding the following SPSS syntax in order to translate it into STATA syntax.

I am using STATA 12

SPSS syntax:

COMPUTE lhsq2 = (lhe - lhe_1)**2.

The variable lhe is the log of hourly pay. My data is one quarter of the UK Labour Force Survey.

I don't know what the lhe_1 means. 

Any help would be much appreciated,
