Subject: Proportion of Sample -Reply
Heres a simple solution :
Results will look something like this :
dummy frequency percent cumul. freq cum. percent
0 20 20 20 20
1 80 80 100 100
In this example the ratio of 1's to total observations is 80%.

I want to know the proportion of a dummy variable (only having 0 and 1
values) in my data set. That is, the ration of event of interest
(numbers of observations with 1/numbers of total observations) over the
whole sample. I think my method is very tedious. Is there anyone can
contribute a simple way to do that?
Thanks in advance.
