Maarten, thank you very much. The way you have done the tabulation is being very useful. May I bother you again with other question? with the same data, I'd like to know, by range of age, what´s the percentage self -employed males or females. I tryed to do this in the same way you have done the other tabulation (using cond()), but it didn´t work. I'm sure that I´m doing something wrong; so, I tryed in an "ugly" way, this: bysort age: egen self_age_m = count(selfemployed & sex == 1) bysort edad: egen self_age_f = count(selfemployed & sex == 2) bysort edad: egen activity_m = count(activity & sex == 1) bysort edad: egen activity_f = count(activity & sex == 2) gen self_act_age_m = self_age_m / activity_m gen self_act_age_f = self_age_f / activity_f noi tab age self_act_age_m noi tab age self_act_age_f but Stata is not doing what I was expecting. The output (wrong) is this: self_act_age_m age? | 1 | Total -----------+-----------+---------- 1 | 66 | 66 2 | 2,311 | 2,311 3 | 3,761 | 3,761 4 | 3,947 | 3,947 5 | 2,852 | 2,852 6 | 1,924 | 1,924 7 | 1,582 | 1,582 -----------+-----------+---------- Total | 16,443 | 16,443 age | self_act_age_f | Total -----------+-----------+---------- 1 | 66 | 66 2 | 2,311 | 2,311 3 | 3,761 | 3,761 4 | 3,947 | 3,947 5 | 2,852 | 2,852 6 | 1,924 | 1,924 7 | 1,582 | 1,582 -----------+-----------+---------- Total | 16,443 | 16,443 But I´to know the percentage of people satisfying some conditions by age. Thank you again!!
