Dear All,
I wanto to gen variable for the sample proportions: men and women in
each occupation.
Command:
sum hwage lwage edu1 edu2 edu3 fem age married ftc northw northe
centre south partime pexper ncomp nkid3 nkid36 nkid612 d09 d10 if
cond3==1 & age>=15 & age<=64 & dipind==1 & hours>20 & hours<55 &
occupation==1

showsme the proportion I want to hava as a variable for each
occupation and gender. It is the value of fem (its mean). Is there a
way to generate a variable which takes the value computed by sum (for
each category) automatically in Stata after each sum?

Thanks a lot
Chiara
