Okay, a second try, then.

Using the auto data, I wish to calculate the foreign/domestic price ratioes for three different levels of repair record.

use c:\data\auto.dta, clear
(1978 Automobile Data)

.
. recode rep 1/3=3
(rep78: 10 changes made)

. tab rep

Repair |
Record 1978 | Freq. Percent Cum.
------------+-----------------------------------
3 | 40 57.97 57.97
4 | 18 26.09 84.06
5 | 11 15.94 100.00
------------+-----------------------------------
Total | 69 100.00

. drop if rep==.
(5 observations deleted)

. sort rep

. by rep: oneway price foreign, t

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-> rep78 = 3

| Summary of Price
Car type | Mean Std. Dev. Freq.
------------+------------------------------------
Domestic | 6,358.405 3,526.92 37
Foreign | 4,828.667 1,285.613 3
------------+------------------------------------
Total | 6,243.675 3,425.43 40

rest of output omitted
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-> rep78 = 4

| Summary of Price
Car type | Mean Std. Dev. Freq.
------------+------------------------------------
Domestic | 5,881.556 1,592.019 9
Foreign | 6,261.444 1,896.092 9
------------+------------------------------------
Total | 6,071.5 1,709.608 18

rest of output omitted
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-> rep78 = 5

| Summary of Price
Car type | Mean Std. Dev. Freq.
------------+------------------------------------
Domestic | 4,204.5 311.83409 2
Foreign | 6,292.667 2,765.629 9
------------+------------------------------------
Total | 5,913 2,615.763 11

rest of output omitted

.
end of do-file


... and here I must stop the do-file and obtain the results above in the following calcualtions:

. dis 6358/4828
1.3169014

. dis 5881/6261
.93930682

. dis 4204/6292
.66815003

Question: Is it possible to do this in one operation?

Sorry, but what results are you talking about?

What are 70,000 110,000 etc.?

Also, you should be able to translate this easily
into an example with a standard dataset accessible
to all Stata users.

I wish to calculate gender wage ratioes for different levels
of education,
hopefully in a less cumbersomeway than below

sort educ
by educ: oneway wage gender, t

and then for each level of educ type:

dis 70,000/110,000
dis 85,000/140,000

and so on...

The main problem is that I have to get the results from the
one-way anovas
first, and then use the results from these in the later -dis-
calculations.
Is there a simple way to do this in one operation so that I
can run the
whole do-file without stopping?
