-tabstat- can only tabulate statistics from the menu 
provided. For the kind of data you have it may be 
that a log transformation is appropriate and that 
in practice the geometric mean will be close to the median. 

Alternatively, with your own measures you might be 
best off writing -egen- functions and then using -tabdisp-
for tabulation.
