<> "I was not aware of the xml_tab. Seems to be an immensely powerful stuff. Can we use it after table/tabstat?" See its help file at the bottom: " Another example demonstrates how to create and output a simple table of the means: .tabstat price mpg rep78 headroom trunk weight length, by(foreign) save .tabstatmat A .matrix TAB=A' .xml_tab TAB, replace tabstat generates a table of means for the list of variables categorized by foreigh. tabstatmat saves the resutls to matrix A. This matrix has tree rows for Domestic, Foreign and Total. In the columns of matrix A are the means for the listed variables. We save the transpose matrix A into another matrix TAB. xml_tab ouptuts the matrix into the default XML file."

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?
