Dear listers,

I have a variable, myx, which has 5 possible values. I have used
-bysort group: myx- to tabulate myx by the group indicator. It works
well, except that, because some of the groups do not have all the 5
possible values of myx, tables of these groups contain less than
5 rows.

For my particular need, I wish that for these groups Stata would
still tabulate all the 5 values of myx, putting 0 as the Freq. and
Percent for the values of myx that are missing in the particular
group.

Is there an easy way to do this? I looked at the help of -tabulate-,
-tabi-, -tab1-, and -tab2-, but did not find solutions.

Thanks in advance.

Eddy
