How do I compare groups with categorical variables?
Say I have three groups: men, women and children. I have
data on whether their favorite choice of media is book,
newspaper, TV or film.
How do I test whether their tastes are statistically
different from each other with Stata?

Sounds like a homework question to me, so I will
only give a hint:

-help mlogit- in combination with -help test-
