I don't think "quick question" deserves quite this much discredit. In particular: 1. I would agree with you that just as simple question may have unsimple answers, quick questions may have unquick answers; but I don't see why one would therefore refrain from framing either as what they are. 2. "quick question" doesn't indicate to me either triviality (see 1 above) or apology. cheers, Jeph Nick Cox wrote:
Never say "I have a quick question".
1. If the question's quick, the answer may not be!
2. If you think your question is trivial, then don't ask it. If you think your question is interesting, it needs no
apology.
That said, findit tabout. I think tabout can do this.

I have a quick question about tables in Stata. I want to have table of medians for one variable, say income, for a bunch of categorical variables, say household head's sex, educational level etc. Table would something like the following: ========================= median of income ======================== Sex: Male Female Educational level: Secondary Vocational . . . . ==================== table A, c(median X) is sort of what I am looking for. It gives the median of the variable X for each category in A. But this one works for only one variable. I don't want to do it one by one for each row categorical variable. It will be really tedious as I have to do it for so many times. Is there any tricks or commands that I can use to achieve what I want to do? I also want to be able to export the table I get to Excel, BTW. Thanks so very much in advance! * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
