Subject   st: New versions of -listtex-, -parmest- and -somersd- on SSC
Date   Thu, 22 Feb 2007 13:14:28 -0000

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

The -listtex-, -parmest- and -somersd- packages are described as below
on my website. The new versions fix a bug, which caused them not to work
under certain rarely-used operating environments, which generate
-tempfile- names with embedded spaces. (See Pages 192-193 of -[P] macro-
in the Stata 9 manuals for details on tempfile names.) I have also taken
this opportunity to update and/or make minor corrections to the online
help and the .pdf manuals.

I would like to thank Phil Bardsley of the University of North Carolina
for informing me of the problem with tempfile names, and Ken Higbee of
StataCorp for advising me (via Statalist) that StataCorp now recommend a
policy of putting compound double quotes around tempfile references to
insure against embedded spaces and other rare characters.

Best wishes

Roger

TITLE
      listtex: List variables as rows of a TeX, HTML or word processor
table

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      listtex outputs a list of variables to the Stata log or to a file
as TeX,
      HTML or word processor table rows, which can then be inserted into
a TeX,
      HTML or word processor table by cutting and pasting and/or file
linking
      and/or embedding (eg using the TeX \input command). listtex
produces the
      table rows, but may also produce a set of header lines before the
table
      rows and/or footer lines after the table rows, containing
preambles and/or
      table definitions and/or table headers and/or table footers, as
specified
      by the user.

package parmest from http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/stata9
------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------

TITLE
      parmest: Create datasets with 1 observation per estimated
parameter

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      The parmest package has 4 modules: parmest, parmby, parmcip and
metaparm.
      parmest creates an output dataset, 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
dataset, 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.
parmcip inputs
      variables containing estimates, standard errors and (optionally)
degrees of
      freedom, and computes new variables containing confidence
intervals and
      P-values. metaparm inputs a parmest-type dataset with 1
observation for each
      of a set of independently-estimated parameters, and outputs a
dataset with
      1 observation for each of a set of linear combinations of these
parameters,
      with confidence intervals and P-values, as for a meta-analysis.
The output
      datasets created by parmest, parmby or metaparm  may be listed to
the Stata
      log and/or saved to a file and/or retained in memory (overwriting
any
      pre-existing dataset). The confidence intervals, P-values and
other parameter
      attributes in the dataset may be listed and/or plotted and/or
tabulated.

package somersd from http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/stata9
------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------

TITLE
      somersd: Kendall's tau-a, Somers' D and percentile slopes

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      The somersd package contains the programs somersd, censlope and
cendif,
      which calculate confidence intervals for a range of parameters
behind
      rank or "nonparametric" statistics. somersd calculates confidence
      intervals for generalized Kendall's tau-a or Somers' D parameters,
      and stores the estimates and their covariance matrix as estimation
results.
      It can be used on left-censored, right-censored, clustered and/or
      stratified data. censlope is an extended version of somersd, which
also
      calculates confidence limits for the generalized Theil-Sen median
slopes
      (or other percentile slopes) corresponding to the version of
Somers' D
      or Kendall's tau-a estimated. cendif is an easy-to-use program to
      calculate confidence intervals for Hodges-Lehmann median
differences
      (or other percentile differences) between two groups. The somersd
package
      can be used to calculate confidence intervals for a wide range of
      rank-based parameters, which are special cases of Kendall's tau-a,
      Somers' D or percentile slopes. These parameters include
differences
      between proportions, Harrell's c index, areas under receiver
operating
      characteristic (ROC) curves, differences between Harrell's c
indices or
      ROC areas, Gini coefficients, population attributable risks,
median
      differences, ratios, slopes and per-unit ratios, and the
parameters
      behind the sign test and the Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney or
Breslow-Gehan
      ranksum tests. Full documentation of the programs (including
methods and
      formulas) can be found in the manual files somersd.pdf,
censlope.pdf and
      cendif.pdf, which can be viewed using the Adobe Acrobat Reader.
