Also

ssc inst groups
sysuse auto
groups foreign, format(%2.1f)

  +------------------------------------+
  |  foreign   Freq.   Percent    Cum. |
  |------------------------------------|
  | Domestic      52      70.3    70.3 |
  |  Foreign      22      29.7   100.0 |
  +------------------------------------+

-fre- is spectacular for one-way tabulation.

-groups- can do n-way tables, but always collapsed to one dimension.
