Hello, I am using Kyrgyzstan survey from 2012. I need to create a variable reflecting employment (v731). I created a dummy using v731: no=0 and other==1. However, I need to exclude women who were employed "once in a while" (category in v732). How can I combine v732 and v731 to exclude women who were employed "once in a while"? I am using STATA. I need to create a dummy variable for women who were employed "throughout the year" and "seasonally/part of the year".

Thank you.

Know this is late, but it seems like a simple idea would just be something like:

gen full_time = v731 *(or start with the 0/1 variable you already created)

replace full_time = 0 if v732==(whatever the right code for part time is)

gen part_time = v732==(whatever the right code for part time is)



Basically - generate your dummy variable at 0/1, and then replace some of the "1"s with "0" if the other variable says they only worked part time. That should do it, right?
