The output would be less rough if the -format()- option of -parmby- had
been used to assign nice formats to the estimates, confidence limits and
P-values. You can include e() results using the -evec()-, -emac()- and
-escal()- options of -parmby-. And the -listtex- package in Stata 8 has
-headline()- and -footline()- options, which allow the user to add parts of
a LaTeX tabular environment before and after the table rows.
Thanks for that. The ouput is produces tables with models
listed by rows rather than by columns, and is a little
rough, and there doesn't appear to be a way to include
e() and r() data.
The reason I asked the question is I am considering attempting
to modify the .ado which implements "est table" to write
Latex. I am not much of a Stata programmer so this may be a
fairly difficult task for me. If anyone could help or offer
suggestions that'd be much appreciated.
In general, you can do everything to -parmest- output data sets that you
can do to other Stata data sets, including merging in new observations
and/or variables using -merge-, and transposing the data using -spose-. You
can then produce presentation-ready plots, or publication-ready tables, or
You might like to refer to my Stata journal article on post-parmest
processing (Newson, 2003), which can be downloaded from my website (see
below), using either a browser or the Stata -net- command, or by simply typing
I hope this helps.
