I don't know what is meant to go in the places where you specify "...."
. However, I think I would first use -xcollapse- to produce a separate
dataset (with 1 observation) of summary stats for each variable,
concatenate them together using -dsconcat-, and then use -listtex- to
create the output LaTeX table. The header rows (containing the headings
"Table 1: Summary statistics" or "Panel A: Dependent Variables" or
"Panel B: Independent Variables") can be inserted either using the
-head- option of -listtex- or using the -ingap- package. All packages
mentioned can be downloaded from SSC using the -ssc- command.

I hope this helps.

Subject: st: Summary statistics/latex

I am trying to generate a latex table of summary statistics that looks
as follows:

Table 1: Summary Statistics

Panel A: Dependent variables

                     Mean         ....
Income            5              ...

Panel B: Independent variables

                     Mean         ....
Education         10             ...

So, I cannot use the program sutex because I want the table to have
two different panels.

Presumably, there is a way of generating this type of table using some
of the program written by Roger Newson, but I could not find an
example of his that was very similar to this.

I would appreciate if anyone who had an example of how to generate a
similar table would email it to me or to the stata listserv.
