The Stata matrix language (documented online by typing -whelp matrix-)
supports only numeric matrices, not string matrices. (This is in
contrast to the matrix language Mata, used in low-level programming,
which does support string matrices.) Therefore, we can only produce a
string variable of stars (as in -parmest-), and not a Stata string
matrix of stars.
You might like to write a Mata program to produce a Mata string matrix
of stars. However, I don't know what you would want to do with such a
matrix, once it has been produced.
I hope this helps.

Subject: st: matrix of significance stars
Hello, everyone.
I am trying to figure out the easiest way to build a matrix of
significance
stars (or other symbols) after either an estimation command or, better
yet,
after building a table of estimates. I figured there would be something
like e(stars), especially since the estimates table can display them so
readily. But, short of -parmest-, which makes me build a whole new
dataset,
I'm not sure how to proceed.
Thank you for your help. adam
