FRE: Stata module to display one-way frequency table


  • Ben Jann

    () (University of Bern)


fre displays, for each specified variable, a univariate frequency table containing counts, percent, and cumulative percent. Variables may be string or numeric. Labels, in full length, and values are printed. By default, fre only tabulates the smallest and largest 10 values (along with all missing values), but this can be changed. Furthermore, values with zero observed frequency may be included in the tables. The default for fre is to display the frequency tables in the results window. Alternatively, the tables may be written to a file on disk, either tab-delimited or LaTeX-formatted.
