sort one variable according to the value of another variable

#1
Hi there,

I am struggling a lot to find a way to resolve what I thought was a very easy question.
Basically I want Stata to list the States according to the percentage of private schools available in those states.

That is, how can I list the states in ascending order according to the number of private schools available in the states?

I hope it makes sense...

Thanks a lot!
