Using the following worked, thanks
bys HHId:g fam=_N>1
egen maxrel=max(p05), by (HHId)
g nuclear=maxrel <3 & fam 
br HHId p05 maxrel fam nuclear

Dear Oleosi,

Assuming that your previous variables nuclear and extended are correct I suggest you to create a tag variable on the dataset.

egen taghh=tag(HHId)

Then,
total nuclear if taghh==1
total extended if taghh==1

you can use this tag variable with other commands and get same result (such as table, count)

Thanks,
Chamara
