I noticed I had sent this to Kahleel, but not to the list, so I thought I should send it on.
This is very similar to what Dennis Deck sent, but with a slight variation.
Try something like this:
This ends up with pseudocode where the first digit indicates gender (1=male, 2=female) and the 2nd is age group.
Recode age (1 thru 14=1)(15 thru 17=2)(18 thru...) into agegrp.
*** make sure gender is coded 1=male, 2=female for the same results as above) Compute GEN_AGE=(Gender*10)+agegrp.
Note that if your agegrp variable will need two digits, the you'd need to multiply gender by 100 instead of 10.

I have a simple query that requires me to go through 22 statements to create a new variable. Here is where I need help.
Age (11 categories) and Gender (2 categories). I want to have a new variable called Gen_Age which combines information from these two variables. Females
(1 to 14), Males (1 to 14), Females (15 to 17) Males (15 to 17) etc. Can we use a vector and/or a loop function to create new variable with 22 categories? Mind you I don't want dummy variables. Best, SKH.
