I use the "tabstat"  function for numeric variable.
I'm surprised that the table don't display the label of the variable,
but its name.
Is it a way to display the variable label in place of its name ?

Apparently you are right, but fortunately somebody else felt the same
need. Try
  . findit table label
and locate -fsum-. 

. sysuse auto

. tabstat price-headroom , stat(n mean sd) col(stat)

    variable |         N      mean        sd
