st: assigning characteristics of one person to multiple observations by group

I have the following:

ID Name PARENT AGE 1 Bryan HH 45 1 WIll son 10 1 Lucy mom 30 2 Scott HH 30 2 Paige mom 31 2 Miles son 4

I need to create a variable ("age_HH") which will equal the age of the head of household ("HH"). I then need to make everyone of the same family ("ID") have that value. Is it sufficient to do the following:

. bysort id: gen age_hh=age if parent==hh
