_EITHER_ the same answer
bysort Item? : gen Count = _N
by Item? : gen tag = _n == 1
list Item? Count if tag
If you want just to keep the
table as new dataset:
keep if tag
keep Item? Count
See [R] contract.
I guess I would have suggested that earlier
if I had sensed interest in dataset as result,
rather than table as result.
