Dear Stata-listers,

I have six binary variables (m1,..,m6) coded 0/1

I wish to see the frequency of the pattern of  occurring 1s, but preserving
the variable sequence.  I am not sure whether any of "egen" functions can
perform the task  (and I prefer not to use egen..=group(..)).

I started off with the following:

for X in num 2/6: recode mX 1=X

then if there is one of egen functions it would be

egen new=fun(m1 m2 m3 m4 m5 m6)

then tabulate new would yield

	new		freq
	------		------
	1,2,3		63
	1,3,4,5		23
	1,4,5		30
	2,5,6		20
.....etc

It is if I am "xtdes" but with variables rather than panel time-entries.

Many thanks for your help in advance.  

Amani
