Here is one way in which the ratios are store as locals:

sysuse auto,clear
recode rep 1/3=3
drop if rep==.

levelsof rep , local(levels)
foreach l of local levels {
	forv  j = 0/1 {
		qui sum price if rep == `l' & fore == `j', meanonly
		local p_`l'_`j' = r(mean)
	}
	local ratio`l' = `p_`l'_0'/`p_`l'_1'
}
macro list _ratio3 _ratio4 _ratio5
