Not your question, but your sds are close
to your means, and it is evident that you
have highly skewed distributions. Printing
both to 5 or 6 significant figure is no
doubt part of what is expected, but their
utility is moot.

I trust that somewhere there is a fuller analysis
with other summary measures and/or comparison on
transformed scales.

I am trying to build a table with summary statistics
(mean and standard deviation) as follows:

           Tanzania 1992-93         Tanzania 1993-94
Harvest	        1708.47                  1254.36
               (1454.64)                 (926.05)

Is there any command that will create a table like
this?  Any advise?  I have used the "tabstat" command
but it places the mean and standard deviation in two
separate columns.
