"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."

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
