I.e., ********** preserve stack v1 v2, into(v3) clear tabstat v3, statistics( mean sd ) columns(variables) restore ********** HTH Martin -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Jon Schwabish Sent: Thursday, August 21, 2008 9:19 PM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: calculating statistics for multiple variables Does anyone know of a quick way of calculating sample statistics for multiple variables without reshaping the data? For example, if I have three variables (columns), how do I calculate means, standard deviations, etc without reshaping the data into one variable (or, obviously, doing the calculations by hand)? For example, calculate the standard deviation of v1 and v2, by treating them as one variable. Thus, treat v1 v2 1 2 2 4 3 6 4 8 as v1 1 2 3 4 2 4 6 8 (instead of calculating it by its parts).
