st: Stata vs. SPSS Tables
I have been prepping my latest journal submission for the past week, and it
occurred to me that the ONLY thing that keeps me going back to SPSS on a
regular basis is that the tables in SPSS look far more polished than
anything I can produce in Stata. Considering that more and more journals in
my field are asking for "photo ready" tables, I find myself forced to use
SPSS in order to produce professional-looking tables. I have been a Stata
user for many years, but I find that I am forced dedicate more of my time to
SPSS for this function. I have even considered (Gasp!) switching to SPSS as
my primary statistical package for this reason alone...
Any thoughts out there? Am I missing something in Stata 8?
