Here is one option (maybe not very elegant but does what you want):

******************************************************
clear
webuse union
table year union south, c(freq mean grade)
***

egen cats = group(south union)

* initialize matrix a1
qui sum year
qui tabstat grade if year == `r(min)', by(cats) save stats(N mean)
qui tabstatmat a1
matrix a1 = a1'


qui sum year
forvalues u = `=`r(min)'+1'/`r(max)' {
        di "`u'"
        capture {
                qui tabstat grade if year == `u', by(cats) save stats(N 
mean)
                qui tabstatmat a
                matrix a`u' = a'
                matrix a1 = a1\a`u'
        }
}

esttab matrix(a1)
