That was not my intention. It is always difficult to recreate a dataset from
descriptions given on Statalist, so you may want to show an excerpt of your
data. Sure, you cannot simply attach it, but you can use -input- to provide
a meaningful chunk of your data....

Thank you very much Martin for your response. I might have not been
clear. I am so  sorry.
The mean that I would like to create is the mean of  frequency (in
percentage actually not in absolute value) of just category 1 to start
with.
I am trying to find a data that could be used to make it easier
because I cannot send files on this list. Now I get confused also with
the data you created.
