tab cat12, gen(newcat12) will give you those required variables (categorical or dummies).

I want to create 12 different scalars or variables for each cat. The problem is that each scalar must take the values correspondent to the log of the number of obs in each cat (weighted) since i have to write an index which needs those numbers. I tried with forvalues but i did not succeed!Ps: cat12 is a variable for occupational categories (from 1 to 12).Inthe index i put the weighted values (weight available in my dataset).
