Stefan:
The following example shows one way to do that.

*------- begin example -----------
sysuse auto, clear
tabstat price, by(foreign) st(median) save
scalar `r(name1)' =  el(r(Stat1),1,1)
scalar `r(name2)' =  el(r(Stat2),1,1)

di scalar(Foreign)
di scalar(Domestic)
*---------- end example ---------

I want to obtain aggregate values (e.g. median age by sex) from an
individual data set and generate locals out of them (to show the values in a
textbox in a graph).
