... It's not that clear to me what data you have, but if you have counts for each ethnic group, then you can use these as frequency weights. Something like this: clear* input id tot_asian tot_white group 1 100 200 1 2 50 250 1 3 100 150 2 4 50 250 2 end rename tot_asian count1 rename tot_white count2 list reshape long count, i(id) j(ethnicity) label define ethnicfmt 1 "Asian" 2 "White" label values ethnicity ethnicfmt tab ethnicity group [fw=count], chi2 -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of B Web Sent: Wednesday, 23 December 2009 6:41 AM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: Re: st: easiest way to get chi-square test Sorry - the private reply was unintended. Make believe data: Group 1: Asians: 78% Pacific Islander: 65% White: 54% African American: 53% Group 2: Asians: 77% Pacific Islander: 64% White: 53% African American: 52% Do the groups differ with respect to ethnicity percentages? My data are continuous counts or percents right now: tab group, sum( tot_asian) -- mean # of asians in each group tab group, sum( tot_white) -- mean # of whites in each group tab group, sum( tot_pacisland) tab group, sum( tot_afam) what I want is to create counts variable so I can do a chi-square on ethnicity (2x2 table) So ethnicity (white,pac.island...) Group1: Group2: data table - columns( Id, tot_asian, tot_white ..., group) 1 100, 200, 1 2 50, 250, 1 3, 100, 150, 2 4, 50, 250, 2 this needs to be transformed so I have a leveled variable with counts for each group. http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/whatstat/whatstat.htm see the section here: tabulate female ses, chi2 I guess I need to generate the ses variable for races, but they are now all different variables. Sorry for the intrusion.
