  I have a dataset of around 1000 people and I want to see how much the sample 
size diminishes by if I match the participants just by age, by age and 
education, by age, education and gender and so on. I do want to do some 
preliminary analyses on those matched people so I would like to store them in 
same manner.

So, I am thinking of a table like this:

Matching Variable              Sample size           ID variable

 Age                                       XX                       id_a

Age & educ                            YY                      id_ae


 Is there any function in STATA which will accomplish this?
