-tabulate- could have an option -label- (much like option -missing-)
that would make sure that every category of a numeric variable that
has a value label defined for it would be included in the table.  Then
many of these odd tables could be constructed in 2 or 3 easy steps.  I
can envision an easy ado-based solution not using Mata, but using
-label save- and -file read- loops to read off the 4th "word" of the
do-file that results from -label save-.
Have a look at -labelsof- (type -ssc describe labelsof-). It does
exactly what you are thinking of. Furthermore, the -fre- command has
an option to include all labeled values in the table (one-way tables
only).

. ssc describe labelsof
. ssc describe fre
