Hello all,

I am trying to recode my longitudinal data for the analysis. I have mother's marital status at different ages, and I want to recode if she is married or single for all the marital status time frames.

Do I have to go through all the variables 1 by 1 for different time frames, or is there any way I could recode them all at once?

Thank you!

Show us a representative portion of the data. Please provide the data as SAS data step code (instructions) and not in any other format.

Thanks for responding @PaigeMiller! I am working on private data; so I can't post the data sample or the code. Also, I figured it out using arrays. However, I have further questions regarding how variables are binded in longitudinal analysis. Like how do we let SAS know that one variable is same another variable, just recorded after 2 months

Show us fake data that illustrates the problem and illustrates the layout of your data.


Statements like this: "I have further questions regarding how variables are binded in longitudinal analysis" cannot be understood without knowing what the data looks like.
