Is there an extension of the Stata -format- command which produces
percentage formats? I would like to use this in the -table- command as
in (hypothetically):
	table sex agegroup, c(sum surgery) format(%2.1p)
If "surgery" is either 0 (no) or 1 (yes) for each individual, this would
give a table of % having surgery. I know there are other ways of doing
this but the tables are typically much more complex than the example
given and it would be very useful to me if I could format the output as
