I really appreciate the responses I've received. I used the mim command with mean, proportion and reg as suggested below and it worked.

Just remember that -mean- and -reg- are giving you standard errors of the mean, not the standard deviation of x. If you use -reg-, then Root MSE gives you the standard deviation (or at least it does when not using -mim-).
