Hello Everyone,
I have three variables: Waist circumference (WC), serum triglyceride (TG)
level and gender. Waist circumference and serum triglyceride is numeric and
gender (male and female) is categorical. From these three variables, I want
to calculate the "Lipid Accumulation Product (LAP) Index". The equation to
calculate LAP is different for male and females. I am giving both equations

LAP for male = (WC-65)*TG
LAP for female = (WC-58)*TG

My question is 'how can I calculate the LAP and create a single new column?

Your cooperation will be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

With Regards
