Thanks to Kit Baum, a new version of the -lincomest- package is now
available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do
this.

The -lincomest- package is described as below on my website. The new
version adds the saved estimation result -e(N_clust)-, containing the
number of clusters used by the previous estimation command. Users who
produce -parmest- resultssets using -lincomest- can therefore store
numbers of clusters in a variable in the resultsset, for use in plots
and tables.

Best wishes

Roger

TITLE
      lincomest: Extension to lincom saving the combination as
estimation results

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      lincomest is an extended version of lincom, which calculates
confidence
      intervals and P-values for linear combinations of model
coefficients.
      lincomest saves the estimate and variance of the linear
combination as
      estimation results, with the option of saving any existing
estimation results
      to be recalled by estimates restore or _estimates unhold. The
advantage of
      doing this is that the linear combination can be input to parmest
or parmby
      to create an output dataset (or resultsset) with one observation,
containing
      a confidence interval and P-value for the linear combination.
This data set
      can be concatenated with other parmest or parmby resultssets using
dsconcat,
      and the confidence intervals and/or P-values can then be plotted
and/or
      tabulated.
