You can go back and forth between variables and matrices via

But the larger question remains: Why do you want to do this? Also note -h

Subject: st: chi-square-test in matrix or crosstab

Dear stata-users,

I'm looking for a opportunity to make chi-square-tests of already
acummulated data.
I have something like this

sysuse auto.dta, clear
tab2 rep78 foreign, matcell(A)

matrix list A

and now I want to test this matrix for statistical independence. If the
matrix would always have the same size, I could use William Gould's (2006)*
 mata-strategy, but it's looped over vars, so I could need a more flexible
way.
Has anyone an idea?

Best regards,
Martin
