Hi!

I want to construct a categorical variable for the gender of first born child using Pdhs in order to identify the effect of gender of first born on the fertility of women. I would highly appreciate any help in this matter. I used bord_01 to generate a dummy that is one if the first born is a son but it appears I making a mistake and the results are rather weird. My guess is the way I construct the variable is wrong.
I would appreciate any help.

Best,
S.
