Stephen Jenkins started a thread on Tuesday 
about summarising multiple tabulations in one table. 

While various people agreed in not knowing 
a way to tackle his problem using commands in official 
Stata, Lee Sieswerda suggested using the -tabm- 
user-written program together with -foreach-. 

He also pointed out that -tabm- was not -by-able, 
that is, you could not do things like 

. bysort cohort: tabm agekst*, trans col

-tabm- is part of the -tab_chi- package 
on SSC, which includes some programs 
for tabulation and chi-square tasks. 
Until just now, it was a bundle of  
programs written for Stata 6. 

(A rather dustier version of the 
same package also exists on 
http://www.stata.com/users/njc) 

Thanks to Lee, and to Kit Baum, 
this package has now been updated 
so that 

1. -tabm- is now -by-able. 

2. Syntax and help file have 
been upgraded to version 7. 

The updated package may be installed by 

. ssc inst tab_chi 

or replaced by 

. ssc inst tab_chi, replace
