st: RE: tabodds command with 'if' option

Assuming your data are set up appropriately, try:

For num 1/5: tabodds case year [fweight=freq] if cat == X

Hi there,

I have a cross-sectional time series dataset. I want to find whether any

trend is presented over the years for different categories. So I used tabodds command. But I want to apply the command for different category seperately. so I write the command syntax over the dataset attached:

> tabodds case year [fweight=freq][if cat = 1] > tabodds case year [fweight=freq][if cat = 2] ... > tabodds case year [fweight=freq][if cat = 5]

Can you tell what's wrong with it? and Do I need write syntax to loop the tabodds five time?

Thank you very much!
