But wouldn't this give one value which is just the total count of x not the counts for the different levels?

I think this will work:

-collapse (count) X-

Don't type the hyphens.  That is Statalist convention for indicating Stata
code.

Then save your data *with a different file name*.  Simply saving it will
replace your original data (although Stata will warn you about this.)

Hi, everyone,

As a new user, could any one show me how to save the results as a data
file so that I can reuse it.

Say, I have  a variable (x) with many levels in a file. I want to get
the total count of each level in a file.

The codes;

Sort x;
By x: count;


Will produce the results on the screen, but I want it in a file like:


X	N
1	5
2	10
.....



Thank you
