collapse (sum) total_riots=riots, by(country year)

If you also have 'city' and want it by that as well then

collapse (sum) total_riots=riots, by(country city year)

See -man collapse- for the full syntax for the -collapse- command. If
you don't understand the syntax diagram then read -man language-.
