Dear all,
I am attempting to create a do file to calculate means of several
variables and then use these values in the csi command.

sum stots if heart==1
scalar a1 = r(mean)
sum stots if heart==0
scalar b1 = r(mean)
sum stotd if heart==1
scalar c1 = r(mean)
sum stotd if heart==0
scalar d1 = r(mean)

csi a1 b1 c1 d1

I get an error that " 'a1' found where integer expected."

I'm not sure using scalars is the right way to accomplish this task.
Is there a way to use the computed results like r(mean) is immediate

If not, can anyone think of a way to do this without having to type in
the individual numbers.

Thank you.
