troubles recoding


I am not sure how to recode three variables into one.

I am trying to recode himcaide, hiprivate, hinotcove to one variable with three outputs 0 (no insurance, 1 private insurance and 3 medicaid. But when it recodes, the only two outputs that show up are No insurance and private insurance. Not sure what to do? Please help


I appears the issue is with your use of HINOTCOVE, which indicates if a person is not covered (HINOTCOVE==2 “Yes, has no coverage”) by health insurance. To get the results you are expecting, simply change the 2s to 1s and the 1s to 2s in that Var 1 Input column.

I hope this helps.
