Dear Statalisters,

I am using the majority command (author: Nicholas J. Cox) to count majority
items in a specific group (defid).  However, when I used the option
generate(newvarlist) with one variable to return the majority calculation,
the variable is not generated.  Below is the command I typed and an extract
of the results.  I would like to further manipulate the majority valuable,
but it is not generated from this command.  Any help is appreciated. Thank
you.

majority predelib, pos(1) neg(2) by(defid) gen(maj)

  +------------------------------------------------+
  | defid   total   positive   negative   majority         |

  |     3       5          2          2          0                    |
  |     7       3          2          0          2                    |

  |    11       4          0          3         -3                  |
  |    13       3          0          1         -1                  |
