. One way is the use -postfile-. Another way must be to store the e(b) results of -mean x, over(var1)- to a growing matrix. I'd like to see how you do that in Stata using either Stata matrix or Mata, if someone can show us. I typically don't use matrices for housekeeping but should. clear tempname memhold tempfile results postfile `memhold' str5 varname mean1 mean0 using "`results'", replace set obs 100 local step 3 forvalues i = 1/16 { generate var`i' = cond(runiform() < (`step'/100),1,0,.) local step = `step' + 3 } rename var16 x foreach var of varlist var1-var15 { summarize x if `var' == 1, meanonly local mean1 = r(mean) summarize x if `var' == 0, meanonly local mean0 = r(mean) post `memhold' ("`var'") (`mean1') (`mean0') } postclose `memhold' use "`results'", clear list > all, > > I have 30 binary variables (e1-e30) and I have another yes/no (0/1) > variable called acuteall; I want to supply my client with an easy to > follow summary comparing the mean acuteall for each category of each of > e1 thru e30; -tabstat-, however, supplies me with the mean of each of e1 > thru e30 for each category of acuteall (command: -tabstat e1-e30, > by(acuteall)-) > > in other words, in the following table, I want to see .122 v. .184 and > what I get instead is .04 v. .0634; suggestions more than welcome (I > could not see how to do this with -collapse- either, but maybe someone > else can) > > . ta e1 acuteall, ro co nofreq > > +-------------------+ > | Key | > |-------------------| > | row percentage | > | column percentage | > +-------------------+ > > | discharge to acute > congestive | (no includes everyone > heart | else)? > failure | N Y | Total > -----------+----------------------+---------- > N | 87.80 12.20 | 100.00 > | 96.00 93.66 | 95.71 > -----------+----------------------+---------- > Y | 81.60 18.40 | 100.00 > | 4.00 6.34 | 4.29 > -----------+----------------------+---------- > Total | 87.53 12.47 | 100.00 > | 100.00 100.00 | 100.00 * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
