I think -tab- isn't going to help me here

http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2012-06/msg00200.html 

, so I guess getting percentages into -table- is going to be my best option.

Or re-define my variable labels.

Best wishes

Hi all,

probably a really simple question to ask but having search around I cant seem to land on a solution..

I am creating a twoway table of year of diagnosis and counts of 30 day mortality, I get the row percentages at the same time using the following code in Stata 11.2:

tab yydx Thirty if ID==5 & stflag=="Yes", row

However, the column width in the table truncates the display of my values, I have two values
column a) 'Died < 30 days'
column b) 'Didnt die <30 days'

When I use the above code, column b is truncated to 'didn't die', now this is misleading.

I therefore tried -table- using the following

table yydx Thirty if ID==5 & stflag=="Yes", col

and this works better and displays the full label, however, I'm not sure how to pull in the row percentages.

Any help appreciated.

Best wishes

Tim
