Hi Statalisters

I am running some foreach tabulate loops the results of which are accumulat ed by matrix commands. (see code below).
 I would like skip (at the point *** in the code) to the next level of local levels based on a conditional test of the number
of observations contained in the scalar e(N) which is returned after each tabulated combination of the foreach variables.
Have not been able to find anything (or even a lead) that could help me do this.

Any suggestions or ideas of how to go about this would be much appreciated.


levelsof lga08_code, local(levels)
foreach l of local levels {
foreach var of varlist  good_srh  satisfied_hlth{
foreach strat of varlist persons rsex agecat_4cat agecat_nhs  agecat_4cat_male  agecat_4cat_female agecat_nhs_m agecat_nhs_f aria_plus_cats quint_pos_weighted {
svy:tab `strat' `var' if lga08_code=3D=3D`l' & agecat_nhs>50 , row se
//extracting necessary scalars and calculations from the matrix output list

****Insertion of condition to skip to next level based on value of scalar e(N)
scalar g=3D`l'

scalar Ppn=3De(N_pop)
scalar Ndenom=3De(N_psu)
scalar def=3De(df_r)
scalar r=3De(r)
matrix c=3De(c)
matrix rt=3Dr*c
scalar rtot=3Drt[1,1]
//Matices with constant values across the tabulation
matrix temp=3DJ(rtot,1,1)
matrix wtdPn=3DPpn*temp
matrix df=3Ddef*temp
matrix geog=3Dg*temp
matrix N=3DNdenom*temp etc etc etc....
