I think -tabstat- may do what you want. Perhaps something like this:

tabstat var1 var2 var3 var4 ... varn, stats(n mean sd min max) by(country) col(stat) longstub

You can also check out the recently expanded -tabout- available through SSC. I haven't used it much yet for summary stats, but I think it may prove useful to you if you want output written to a file for exporting.

Dear Statalisters,

I am in the process of summarising my data, and was wondering if anyone
knows a way of making a table with the criteria stated in the by
command.

For example, I need to report a table for each variable with its mean,
its std. deviation, min and max, and #obs. per country and year (or per
year, depending on the variable).

I\'m sure there should be a much better way than loading the log file in
excel and taking value by value!

Many thanks in advance,
Andrea
