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?
