I think this will work (it works on my stata8.2 and I don't think this was
changed):

tab broadincomecat jobsat, row

That should give you row percentages.  For column percentages it would be:

tab broadincomecat jobsat, column

and for table percentages it would be:

tab broadincomecat jobsat, cell

Hope this helps.

I don't know why typing the exact same thing yields different results on my computer!
