  I wonder if the -tablist- command might help you with this, see

. net install tablist, from(

  It allows you to create n-way tables in a tabular format. So, you could do something like

. tablist econ soc engin father mother professor friend

However, I think such a table could get unwieldy and sparse very quickly. But, this might be insightful...

. tablist econ soc engin father

. tablist econ soc engin mother

. tablist econ soc engin professor

. tablist econ soc engin friend

So, this would show you the conference participation (for all categories) broken down by each method of how you heard about the conference.

  I hope that is helpful.

I have a question regarding "multiple responses". I know that stata's
mrtab command can deal with multiple responses (by a regular variable)
but is it possible for the mrtab command, or for any of stata's
commands, to deal with multiple responses (by multiple responses)?
For example, let's say I have two multiple choice questions.
Which of the following conferences have you participated in? (Check
all that apply)
1. Economics 2. Sociology 3. Engineering

And secondly, how did you learn about the conferences you have
participated in? (Check all that apply)
1. Father 2. Mother 3. Professor 4. Friend

Using the responses, I would like to make a 2-way table showing
"multiple response by multiple response".

Many thanks.
