That is what my example achieves, though using -collapse- instead of
-contract-. 

Another way of doing it would be to separate the data by entercol, and
-contract- or -collapse- it twice, once for entercol==1 and once for
entercol==0, and then merge the resulting files by the 15 crosstab
variables.
