Greetings!

I'm trying to generate a variable from two different variables. i.e a variable that has both stunted and overweight children. I came up with the following STATA codes but not sure if it is correct.

gen stunting_overweight=.
replace stunting_overweight =1 if stunting==1 & baz1==1
replace stunting_overweight =0 if stunting==1 & baz1==0

see the below table used as a reference when generating the variable


-------------------------------
| baz1
stunting | 0 1 Total
----------+--------------------
0 | .8916 .1084 1
| 5036 716 5752
|
1 | .9483 .0517 1
| 3004 219 3223
|
Total | .9131 .0869 1
| 8040 935 8975
-------------------------------
