Adrian de la Garza <[email protected]>:
One solution is to make the tab using an estimation command.  The
coefs and SEs are available after estimation commands as matrices and
as scalars (see [U] 13.5 for the latter, and also try -eret list-
after any estimation command for the former).  Here's a variety of
illustrations:

sysuse nlsw88, clear
proportion ind, over(coll)
mat li e(b)
test [Mining]_b[_subpop_1]=[Mining]_b[_subpop_2]
g one=1
svyset [pw=one]
svy: tab collgrad ind, row se
di _b[p24]
di _se[p24]
test _b[p22]=_b[p12]
mat b=e(b)
mat b24=b[1,"p24"]
mat li b24
mat V=e(V)
mat V24=V["p24","p24"]
mat li V24
di sqrt(V24[1,1])

[The se option on svy: tab is not optional; if you leave it off, the
e() results will contain cell proportions instead.]

The matrices and _b and _se variables work the same way after
regression or other estimation commands.
