Stata is telling you what is wrong. It has nothing to do with not being able to store values. I assume since you are asking for r(mean) after -summarize- that you are saving a scalar float with several decimal places. However, -csi- the routine expects an integer based on count data. The following will probably be complete nonsense statistically but illustrates the point: sum stots if heart==1 local a1 = round(r(mean),0) // round to create integers sum stots if heart==0 local b1 = round(r(mean),0) sum stotd if heart==1 local c1 = round(r(mean),0) sum stotd if heart==0 local d1 = round(r(mean),0) csi `a1' `b1' `c1' `d1' Giving csi a scalar, even if it is an integer, doesn't work. Contrast the results of: -csi 2 4 6 8- versus -csi 2.0 4.0 6.0 8.0- D. C.
