I tried using this code

qui {

noi di "Variable`=char(9)'N1`=char(9)'Mean1`=char(9)'N2`=char (9)'Mean2`=char(9)'p-value"

foreach var of varlist q52-q61 {
cap ttest `var', by (q2q6)

noi di as text "`var'`=char(9)'" as result %8.0f `r(count)'
"`=char(9)'" %8.2f `r(mu_1)' "`=char(9)'" %8.2f `r(p)'

If you do

sysuse auto
ttest price, by(foreign)
return list

you see that r(N_1) and r(N_2) contain the counts in the two categories. There is no r(count).
You probably want to include both r(mu_1) and r(mu_2) in your display statement if you want to
see the means of each category.
