Re: st: Combining Frequency Tables

Not quite. For example, if Var X has 100 records and Var Y has 200 records where Var X has #6 twenty times and and Var Y has #6 ten times, the frequency of the variable would be:

(20+10) /(100+200) = 30/300 or 0.1

I guess 'table' is the wrong term. I need the combined frequency of two variables. Does this make sense?

-tab x y- will give you a cross tabulation, which is I suppose what
you mean with a "combined frequency table". For more see: -help tab2-.

Hope this helps,
