Dear all,
I have data on people using different methods to ask people on a date (e.g. via internet, at a party etc) and I would like to see if some methods on average lead to greater number of acceptancies than others. For that i need to create a variable which summarizes a number of acceptances by method. I created a variable accept which equals 1 if a date proposal is accepted and 0 if it is unsuccessful.
I then run the following command:

bysort method: su accept

am I correct in assuming that r(sum) scalar saves the total number of ones by each method in this case? And if yes is it possible to generate a variable that would equal this saved r(sum) scalar by each method?
I would be very grateful for advice,
Warm regards,
Ekaterina
