I'd like to analyze caregiver status (parenting a child/grandchild [yes=1; no=0]; helping spouse with ADLs/iADLs [yes=1; no=0]; helping parents with ADLs/iADLs [yes=1; no=0]) into three categories:
No caregiving = 0
Engaged in one caregiving role = 1
Engaged in two or more caregiving roles = 2
Any ideas on the code/syntax to write in SAS?
Thanks so much

It would help to have some variable names but:
Caregiving = sum(care1, care2, care3);
Caregiving = min(2,Caregiving); /* this maps the 3 value if it occurs to a 2) could use: if caregiving=3 then caregiving=2 as well.*/
is a quick and dirty way.
