A side issue: The distinction between numeric and string does not bite here for returning macros to Stata.

A local macro is a place for holding character strings, which can be numeric characters. Thus -st_local()- will work fine regardless of content.

I don't know of a way to use Mata to put numeric values in a local.
st_local only works with string values, I think. But you could return
each element of a Mata vector to separate Stata scalars. Say X is a
Mata column vector:
mata: st_numscalar("r(rows)", rows(X))
forvalues row = 1/`r(rows)' {
   mata: st_numscalar("r(v`row')", X[`row',
