Yes indeed, but the difference between a Stata variable
and a Stata vector is larger in practice than in principle. 

There are ways of getting matrices into variables 
and vice versa (including, but not only, -svmat- and -mkmat-) 
but a crucial difference is that Stata variables and Stata 
matrices (vectors being a special case) are in different
