ethid4a and pride4a in wave 2
I am now using wave 2 to construct some new variables in Stata12 for my research. This involves two variables: ethid4a (importance of own religion) and pride4a (pride in own religion). If using tabulation, the stats in both variables seems fine. However, when using cross-tab with other variables, most of the categories in the variable went missing (please find attached file for a screen shot).
I am actually quite new to both Stata and USoc. And I would like to know what might cause this and how I can fix the problem.
Thank you very much.

- Category set to Data documentation
- Status changed from New to In Progress
- % Done changed from 0 to 50
pride4a is routed partly on (EthId4a = 1|2), so only those responses would have been followed up with the pride4a question.
Pride4a. Pride in own religion
Do you feel proud of your religion?
3 Neither yes or no
Module Ethnicidentity_w2. Ethnic Identity module
If (GRIDVARIABLES.ModeType = 1) // Mode is face-to-face
And If (ff_ivlolw = 1 & (GRIDVARIABLES.EMBoost = 1 | GRIDVARIABLES.GPCompare = 1 |
GRIDVARIABLES.LDA = 1 | GRIDVARIABLES.NEWIMM = 1)) // did a full interview last wave and is in the EMBoost sample, GP
Comparison sample or LDA sample or is a recent immigrant
And If (EthId4a = 1|2) // Own religion is very or fairly important to respondent's sense of who they are
PS Apologies for taking so long to answer this request. The good news is that we will soon be able to release another wave's worth of data.
