Thanks to Kit Baum, new versions of the -parmest- and -metaparm-
packages are now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the
-ssc- command to do this.

The -parmest- and -metaparm- packages are described as below on my
website. The new versions are planned as the final Stata 8 versions
before the upgrade to Stata 9, and contain the same programs as before,
but the online help files are updated with additional Web references and
with my new email address.


Best wishes

Roger

TITLE
      parmest: Convert estimation results to a data set with 1 obs per
parameter

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      parmest creates an output data set, with 1 observation per
parameter of the
      most recent estimation results, and variables corresponding to
parameter names,
      estimates, standard errors, z- or t-test statistics, P-values,
confidence
      limits and other parameter attributes. parmby is a quasi-byable
extension to
      parmest, which calls an estimation command, and creates a new data
set, with 1
      observation per parameter if the by() option is unspecified, or 1
observation
      per parameter per by-group if the by() option is specified. The
output data
      set may be listed to the Stata log and/or saved to a file and/or
retained in
      memory (overwriting any pre-existing data set).

package metaparm from http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/stata8
------------------------------------------------------------------------

TITLE
      metaparm: Meta-analysis and transformations using parmest
resultssets

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      
      The metaparm package contains two resultsset-processing programs,
parmcip
      and metaparm, for use with parmest resultssets. metaparm inputs a
dataset
      in memory with one observation per parameter and variables
containing
      estimates, standard errors and (optionally) degrees of freedom,
and creates
      an output dataset with one observation, or one observation per
by-group, and
      data on estimates, standard errors, z- or t-statistics, P-values
and
      confidence limits for a linear combination (weighted sum) of the
input
      parameters, assuming that the input parameters are estimated
independently
      for different sub-populations.  The output dataset can be listed
to the Stata
      log, saved to a disk file, or written to memory, overwriting the
existing
      dataset. metaparm is useful for meta-analyses and for calculating
confidence
      intervals and P-values for differences or ratios between
parameters for
      different subpopulations.  parmcip inputs a dataset in memory with
one
      observation per parameter and variables containing parameter
estimates,
      standard errors and (optionally) degrees of freedom, and adds new
variables
      to the dataset, containing the confidence limits, z- or
t-statistics,
      P-values, and (optionally) stars for P-values.  parmcip is useful
if the user
      requires confidence intervals for a transformation of the original
      parameters.
