Dear All,
 This is quite a stimulating discussion. Thanks to all.
1) While writing my previous response, I just realized that -collapse-
is probably a better deal.

collapse (mean)  varlist, by (ethnicity gender)

And indeed it is, except that I need to transpose it Excel (purely for
exposition purpose). Though I learned a great deal, particularly from
Toy's suggestions.

2) It is still intriguing as to why tabstat allows two levels in one
situation and not in the other situation.Though I am not sure if
anything needs to be defended. To me clearly depends on the problem at
hand.

3) I was not aware of the xml_tab. Seems to be an immensely powerful
stuff. Can we use it after table/tabstat?
 Best,
 Prabal
