Hi All,

Thanks to Kit Baum, a new stata command, -stat2data-, is now available
for download from SSC. -stat2data-, a wrapper for the Stata's official
tabstat command, generates a dataset of descriptive statistics
calculated for a list of variables.  stat2data's output is different
from that of collapsing a dataset using the collapse command. In the
dataset generated by -stat2data-, the statistics are in columns and
the variables for which the statistics were calculated are in rows.

To install, type:

. ssc install stat2data


        . sysuse auto, clear

        . stat2data price mpg trunk weight length turn,
saving(statdata) by(rep78) stat(mean sd k sk q) missing

        . preserve

        . use statdata, clear

        . list

        . restore

Happy Holidays,
