Max,

I think Ian Watson's -tabout- (SSC) may be your best bet. It will create
LaTeX tables. For Word, you can choose between tab- or comma-separated
value tables (perhaps imported into Excel first) or HTML.

My recollection is that the program is geared toward three-way tables and
you may have to trick it into creating two-way tables like your example by
creating a variable whose values are all equal to one. Consult the
included PDF documentation, too.
