Abstract: I set out to describe the origins, development, and current status of a Stata program suite I have developed to handle requests for up-to-date tables and graphs showing the demographic distribution and outcomes of registry data. Stata's tabulation and graphical features continue to develop and become more flexible, and with the putdocx functions making it straightforward to generate reports, it is easier than ever to create publication-quality output. However, it is also important to make sure when creating graphs and tables that the headings, axis labels, legend, etc. match the content. As a statistician with the British Society of Blood and Marrow Transplantation (BSBMT), demands on my time include specific retrospective studies. In these cases, data are double checked, cleaned, and returned to me at a prespecified time point. Other analysis requests also increasingly include "up-to-date" reports on the whole registry or large subsections of it. These frequently involve repetitive graphs, tables, or both, for instance, cycling over diagnosis or over centers where the procedures were performed. This drove the creation of the suite of programs I will describe to generate tables of demographics, outcomes, and graphs (mostly survival curves).
