st: Updates to esta, esto, estout, and estadd available from SSC
Thanks to Kit Baum, updates to -esta-, -esto-, -estout-, and -estadd-
are available from the SSC archive.
To install the updates, type
. ssc install esta, replace
. ssc install esto, replace
. ssc install estout, replace
. ssc install estadd, replace
or use the -adoupdate- command.
Changes to -esta- (module to display formatted regression table):
o -esta- has a new -rtf- option to write a table in Rich Text Format
for use with Word (tested on Word 2002 on Windows XP). The
option is under development. It may not yet work with other RFT
o -esta- has a new -main(name)- option to print the contents of
e(name) instead of point estimates. For example,
. sysuse auto
. reg price mpg weight
. estadd summ
. esta, main(mean) aux(sd) nocons
would print a table containing the means and standard deviations
of the regressors.
Changes to -esto- (module to store estimates):
o The default for -esto- was to store the estimates without the e(sample)
(to save memory). This has been changed. -esto- now does store the
e(sample) by default.
o There new command called -_esto-. It is a variant on -esto- that, by
default, does not store the e(sample). Essentially, -_esto- is a shortcut
to -esto, noesample-.
Changes to -estout- (module to export estimation results):
o The * and ? wildcards are now allowed in equation name specifications
in options such as keep(), drop(), and order().
o Coefficient name specifications in options such as keep(), drop(), and
order() were internally expanded using the -unabbrev- command. This
was somewhat inconsistent because it only worked for coefficients
which had a accompaining variables in the current dataset. The new
version of -estout- now uses the set of existing coefficient names in
the models as the basis for name expansion. The * and ? wildcards
are allowed (however, abbreviation without wildcards is not supported
Changes to -estadd- (module to add results to stored estimates):
o There is a new subcommand called -lrtest- to add results from a
