<> Barbro asks Is there something similar to tabstatmat or makematrix for the table command? I would like to use the results from a "table" command as a matrix. -- example command .table var1 var2 , c(mean var3) concise does a simple solution to this problem exist? Please help - I do seem to have problems in phrasing the question in a way that doesn't produce a huge number of irrelevant results No. As you can see from --return list--, the --table-- command does not save anything beyond the sample size. Ian Watson's --tabout-- from SSC can be used to do this in a somewhat roundabout manner. sysuse auto tabout mpg rep78 using junk.csv, c(mean price) sum replace f(1) insheet using junk.csv,clear destring v*, force replace This will create numeric variables. If you want them as a Stata matrix (why?) you can use mkmat. Note that values not appearing in the two-way table show up as missings, so you might want to mvencode them as zeros (or not).
