For decision making, we standardly use:
gen decisionmaking = 0
replace decisionmaking = decisionmaking + 1 if v743a==1 | v743a==2
replace decisionmaking = decisionmaking + 1 if v743b==1 | v743b==2
replace decisionmaking = decisionmaking + 1 if v743d==1 | v743d==2

In some surveys, additional questions are asked and may be used in the decision making variable.
