You need to learn more about returned results from commands. Try typing ereturn list after svy:mean and see what is stored. You almost have the loop you need:

foreach var of varlist var1 var2 var3 {

qui svy: mean `var'

mat b=e(b)

local sd= sqrt(e(N) * el(e(V_srs), 1, 1))

noi di "`var' " _col(15) b[1,1] _col(30) `sd'

}

You may want to add some numeric formats to the display statement

Subject: st: svy: mean and descriptive tables

<snip>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
