st: svy: mean and descriptive tables |

Dear Statalisters, I am running several svy: mean commands for a descriptive statistic table I am creating. Here is the code I am running: After svy setting the variables foreach var of varlist var1 var2 var3 { svy: mean `var' di sqrt(e(N) * el(e(V_srs), 1, 1)) } I am using Stata 9. This code is working fine, and the first line calculates the weighted mean and the second the standard deviation. My question is: Is there a way for me to write a code to create a table for my means and standard deviations automatically? For instance, I would like a table as follows: Var 1 mean1 sd1 Var 2 mean2 sd2 Var 3 mean3 sd3 Any suggestions on how I could do this? Here is my first attempt at a program: prog svymean local mean = svy: mean `1' local sd = di sqrt(e(N) * el(e(V_srs), 1, 1)) display e(varlist) `mean' `sd' end Then I thought I would run this for each of my variables and copy and paste the results into a text file and then convert into an excel or word file. But, this didn't work because it wouldn't calculate the svy: mean of `1'. I searched Statalist and I did not see a ready solution, but I could have missed something. In advance, I never know whether to e-mail thank yous and fill up everyone's in boxes that much more, so in advance, a whole-hearted thank you to anyone who replies. I really appreciate it.
