# Help me with summary on combination of variables' value

Hi Everyone,

I have a dataset that have a Target Variable and a number of independent variables, say a1 a2 … a6 as below.

I want to create a summary file of the target value for each combination of independent variable and their value.

Basically the summary will answer the question:

If a1=5 and a2=9,       how many observations have target=0 and how many have target=1.

If a1=4 and a2=1,       how many observations have target=0 and how many have target=1.

If a1=5 and a3=1,       how many observations have target=0 and how many have target=1.

…..

I really appreciate it if you could help me with this problem.

Thank you,

HHC
