Dear Svend:

Thank you for your reply. I tried -tabm- and I get the correct output. However, do you know if there is easy way to produce a tab-delimited file based on -tabm-?

If not, I will use the solution proposed by Jean.

Best regards

Herve

I have a basic stat on a dummy variable with -table-:

table auditor_d

-------------------------
       Auditor |      Freq.
-------------+-----------
Non-Big four |         43
      Big four |        156

I don't find a way to have the results presented horizontally (in a row) an=
d not vertically.
If this is possible, I would like then to export the results in a tab-delim=
ited file.
=2E..
(The origin of my question is that I have in reality several dummy variable=
s and I would like to have those variables in lines and the output in two c=
olumns).

I start creating an artifical dataset with five dummy variables:

    clear
    set obs 100
    foreach V of newlist v1-v5 {
       gen `V' =3D uniform()>0.5
    }

    tabm v1-v5

             |        Values
    Variable |         0          1 |     Total
-----------+----------------------+----------
          v1 |        54         46 |       100
          v2 |        44         56 |       100
          v3 |        53         47 |       100
          v4 |        58         42 |       100
          v5 |        37         63 |       100
-----------+----------------------+----------
       Total |       246        254 |       500

-tabm- is part of the tab_chi package at SSC:
    ssc install tab_chi

Best,
Svend
