egen newvar = mode(oldvar), by(groupvars)

Then reduce to one observation per groupvars.

Note that there are some options on -egen...mode-, which you may want to look into.
See -help egen-.

I also have an alternative mode function (regarding how it handles ties); write me privately if you want to have it.

Dear Stata friends,

I am trying to collapse some variables using the MODE as my descriptive
statistic, but I see that -collapse- doesn't allow this. Any thoughts?

Thank you.
