Indeed, you said that and I missed it. My excuse is that you didn't spell that out as requested (-plotmatrix- (SSC)). You might be able to figure this out from -makematrix- (SJ) but it could be easier just to write your own loops: sysuse auto, clear matrix means = J(5,2,.) forval i = 1/5 { forval j = 0/1 { su mpg if foreign == `j' & rep78 == `i', meanonly matrix means[`i', `j' + 1] = r(mean) } } On 4 April 2013 00:37, Dimitriy V.
