Hello All

Thanks to Kit Baum, there are now new versions of -listtex- and -parmest- available for download on SSC. In Stata, type -ssc desc listtex- or -ssc desc parmest- to find out more.

The -listtex- and -parmest- packages are as described below on my website at

http://www.kcl-phs.org.uk/rogernewson/

The new versions are in Stata 8. However, the Stata 7 version of -listtex-, and the Stata 7, 6 and 5 versions of -parmest-, are still available for download from my website for users who do not have Stata 8.

The -listtex- package has been improved by the addition of -headlines()- and -footlines()- options, allowing the user to output Stata data sets to TeX, LaTeX, HTML and word processor tables with headers and footers.

The -parmest- package has been improved by upgrading the -list()- option with suboptions enabling the user to take advantage of the full power of the Stata 8 -list- command. It also has a new -stars()- option, allowing the user to add to the output data set a string variable -stars- containing a number of stars for the P-value, using a user-defined list of P-value thresholds. Also, I have tried to make the online help more easy to use by sorting the total of 22 options now available into 5 subgroups of options of similar function. (The Stata Graphics manuals do this when a graphics command has a large number of options and suboptions.)

I would like to thank Jeff Pitblado for his helpful advice during the writing of the new -listtex-, and Fred Wolfe and Vince Wiggins for their helpful advice regarding the new -parmest-.

Best wishes

Roger

TITLE
listtex: List variables as rows of a TeX, HTML or word processor table

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
listtex outputs a list of variables to the Stata log or to a file as TeX,
HTML or word processor table rows, which can then be inserted into a TeX,
HTML or word processor table by cutting and pasting and/or file linking
and/or embedding (eg using the TeX \input command). listtex produces the
table rows, but may also produce a set of header lines before the table
rows and/or footer lines after the table rows, containing preambles and/or
table definitions and/or table headers and/or table footers, as specified
by the user.

TITLE
parmest: Convert estimation results to a data set with 1 obs per parameter

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
parmest creates an output data set, with 1 observation per parameter of the
most recent estimation results, and variables corresponding to parameter names,
estimates, standard errors, z- or t-test statistics, P-values, confidence
limits and other parameter attributes. parmby is a quasi-byable extension to
parmest, which calls an estimation command, and creates a new data set, with 1
observation per parameter if the by() option is unspecified, or 1 observation
per parameter per by-group if the by() option is specified. The output data
set may be listed to the Stata log and/or saved to a file and/or retained in
memory (overwriting any pre-existing data set).
