Re: st: places past the decimal point

Does anyone know if there is a way to get STATA to produce more places
past the decimal point for statistics such as means, standard deviations,
beta coefficients from an OLS regression, standard errors?
Yes. Use the -parmest- package, downloadable from SSC. Type -ssc desc
parmest- in Stata to find out more.
The -parmest- package creates a data set with 1 observation per model
parameter, or 1 observation per parameter per by-group, and data on
parameter names, estimates, standard errors, confidence limits, P-values,
and other parameter attributes specified by the user. It has a -format-
option so the user can choose how many decimal places (or significant
figures) s/he wants to use. In the simplest case, -parmest- can list this
data set to the Stata log or to the output window, as Robert seems to want
to do. However, the user can alternatively save the data set to a disk
file, or even write it to memory (overwriting the previous data). The user
can then produce plots and/or tables of confidence limits for delivery to
the end user.
If Robert has Stata 8, then the -estimates table- command in official Stata
might be a less powerful but slightly simple alternative. Type -help
estimates table- to find more about this possibility.
I hope this helps.
