In addition to several other answers, some of which seem to tackle Carmen's problem and others which could be useful anyway, there are also -groups- and -tabcount- from SSC. A write-up accessible to all, SJ subscribers or not, is at SJ-3-4 pr0011 . . . . . . . . Speaking Stata: Problems with tables, Part II . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . N. J. Cox Q4/03 SJ 3(4):420--439 (no commands) reviews three user-written commands (tabcount, makematrix, and groups) as different approaches to tabulation problems This can be seen on-line at <http://www.stata-journal.com/sjpdf.html?articlenum=pr0011> The key problem behind Carmen's problem was well explained by Maarten Buis: How is Stata to know about values that might exist as far you are concerned but don't exist in the data? Ben Jann's -fre- implements one natural Stataish idea, that for categorical variables a value label will be defined. -tabcount- in particular implements a more mundane idea: you spell out to Stata which values you want to tabulate. It also adds a less usual twist: you can specify bins using inequalities (which need not be disjoint).
