See the help on -levelsof-. 

levelsof var1 if var2 == x, local(levels) 

Also, this list is called Statalist. 
I don't know why so many people call it statlist.

In the hope not to have overlooked something obvious in the help files 
or in the statlist archives, here's my problem:
I wonder whether it is possible to store certain variable values that 
come as an output of a list command into a local macro. Consider the 
following simple command:

list var1 if var2==x

How can I efficiently store the resulting values of var1 in a local? Of 
course, if there is a solution bypassing the list comand, I'd be happy,
too.
