Thank you Svend for suggesting tabstat.

However, it seems that -tabstat- does not allow more than one variable in
the by(varname) option.
-table row col supercol- allows up to 3. Although the by(varlist) prefix
could be used with -tabstat-, it would seem simpler and satisfy the
requirement to produce more compact tables by including sem as an option
in -table-.

Regards, Garry
