RE: st: Different confidence intervals from proportions and tabulates (also in survey)
As before, your terminology of negative CIs is puzzling.
An interval is a length; if the upper limit falls below
the lower limit, then there is really is a bug. However,
as before, I assume you are talking about negative lower limits
There is a no attachments rule on Statalist. (The FAQ explains.)
The export to MS Excel is naturally independent of these issues
and your own choice. If you have Excel-specific problems that
are also relevant to Statalist, others will advise.
