Thanks to Kit Baum, an update to the -estout- package is available
from SSC. To install the update, type
. ssc install estout, replace
or use the -adoupdate- command. Main changes are:
1. -estout- has a new -indicate()- option to indicate for each model
whether certain variables (or groups variables) are present in the
model. For example, if some of the models contain a set of year
dummies, say y1 y2 y3, specify
. estout ..., indicate(year effects = y1 y2 y3)
to drop the dummies from the table and add a row indicating whether
the year dummies are part of a model or not.
2. -estout- has a new -refcat()- option to insert information on the
reference category of a categorical variable in the model.
3. -estout- has a new -transform()- option to apply transformations to
coefficients, standard errors and confidence intervals. -transform()-
is a generalization of the -eform- option and allows, e.g., applying
different kinds of transformations to different coefficients (say,
apply exp() to the random effects part of a -xtmixed- model, but leave
the rest unchanged, see
http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2006-11/msg00443.html).
4. -estout- now takes action to clean up the table if equation names
are different from model to model. In Stata 9, many commands return
results using multiple-equations, which may be legitimate, but often
messes up the table (see e.g.
http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2006-11/msg00444.html).
-estout- now automatically matches first equations, if the equation
names are different.
Hope you like it,
