Hi,
I am trying to generate a variable combining 3-4 variables.

Example: At first from v157 v158 v159,I created
1)frequency of reading newspaper (yes no, 1 0) = frn
2)frequency of watching tv (yes no, 1 0) = fwt
3)frequency of listening radio (yes no, 1 0) = flr.

Now combining these 3 variables, I want to make a new variable, named "media exposure" with just (yes no, 1 0).

What should be the command in stata?

I used like this in BDHS14 KR dataset,

gen media= int ((frn+fwt+flr)/3)
ta media

But, I don't think this is right. How can I solve my problem?
