st: update to -estout- on SSC
Thanks to Kit Baum, the -estout- package has been
updated on SSC.
Type -ssc install estout- to install the package.
I recommend to uninstall previous versions of
-estout- (see -help ado-) before installing the
update in order to delete some obsolete files
from your system.
Please take note of the following changes if you
intend to upgrade to the new version:
- The naming convention for -estout-'s defaults files
has been changed in order to prevent name conflicts.
The defaults files are now called "estout_style.def"
where "style" is the name the defaults set. In
addition, the -defaults()- option has been renamed to
-style()- (however, -defaults()- can still be used
as a synonym for -style()-).
- The package includes a new -estoutdef- command to
view and edit -estout-'s defaults files.
- The package includes a new -estadd- command.
-estadd- can be used to add additional results to
the e()-returns for the stored models and thus make
them available for tabulation with -estout-.
In turn, -estout- does not support subroutines
anymore to calculate new statistics. Consequently,
also the -stats(,calc())- option does not exist
I realized that the computation of additional
results and the formating of output tables are
two very different tasks and should be separated.
- A lot of work has been done to improve the online
- The package includes a new style called "fixed". It
produces a table with fixed column widths.
- The intervall for -starlevels- is now (0,1] instead
of (0,1) and null strings ("") are allowed as symbols.
- -estout- now supports multiple display formats for
parameter statistics (e.g. %9.3f for the standard
error of the first coefficient, %9.4f for the
standard error of the second coefficient, and so
on). The last format is used for the remaining
regressors if the number of regressors in the table
is greater than the number of specified formats.
- -estout- now uses the last format for the remaining
summary statistics if the number of summary statistics
in the table is greater than the number of specified
- ... and, of course, a couple of bugfixes.
