Dear Statalisters,

I have two simple questions concerning how to make tables in Stata:
1) I want to make a table with the following setup:


                Informal firm   Formal firm
                Male    Female  Male    Female
myvar1          36.21   40      23.76   ...
myvar2                      ...             ...             ...             ...
myvar3                      ...             ...             ...             ...

I have been putting these tables together by calculating each variable
separately with the following command:
by firm_infor fem : sum myvar1
by firm_infor fem : sum myvar2
by firm_infor fem : sum myvar3
and then taking the relevant mean statistic and transfering the values
into Excel. However this takes a long time.

2) How would I do the same table, but for dummy variables (with 0 or 1
as potential responses) in which I do not want the mean, but just the
number of firms that responded 1 to a particular variable. I have been
doing the following:
by firm_infor fem : tab myvar4
by firm_infor fem : tab myvar5
by firm_infor fem : tab myvar6
and then just taking the statistic for those firms that responded 1.
This takes a long time too.

I hope this is clear enough. This is the first time I am posting a
question on Statalist, so please let me know if you need any further
information.

Warm regards,
Sina
