I have complained about this same thing at the last couple of NASUG meetings and the Stata folks said they will look into it, but didn't like the options of putting the result in s() or c() like I suggested -- clearly r() could cause problems. It just seems that if it shows up on the screen, it should be accessible.

Instead, I often need to add a count command like you did, which becomes an execution time concern when dealing with large datasets (1 million records).

. sysuse auto
. replace price=-3 if foreign==1
(22 real changes made)

Is there a way to access this 22 value?  It seems
uncharacteristic of Stata to provide data in the
output that is not available as a return value.
