I need help in constructing family structure variable in Stata software by using data from a household survey. I have data on household roster and to create family structure variable i will be using data of these variables: hhcode, relation to head, gender, marital status and residential status.
In family structure variable, I want to create three types of families: nuclear family(coded as 1), extended family(coded as 2) and multiple family(coded as 3).
Nuclear family criteria: husband and wife living with their unmarried children
Extended family criteria: husband, wife, married/unmarried children, parents, and any unmarried sibling living together.
Multiple family criteria: more than one married siblings living together
I am unable to find Stata commands that can help me in this regard.
