More generally, there are at least two ways to do this. First, produce a new classified variable and then -tabulate- it. The example here could have been gen upper = 10 * ceil(wage / 10) tab upper Second, produce a table on the fly. -tabcond- on SSC has some limited functionality in this respect. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Martin Weiss -egen, cut- is for you. -ta- afterwards.. Man Jia <jia.m@neu.edu>: > I was wondering how to show frequency of a continuous variable in > several ranges.
