Ben,

In terms of "correct", I was thinking of first running my regression and

then using something along the lines of a -svy- command using the subpop

option and e(sample) to calculate the sd of my independent variables. One

could then compare this result with what -estadd- and -listcoef- computes.

However, I believe there was a post long ago that asked if -svy- could

indeed calculate sd's for variables and the answer was "not directly". I

have yet to find the actual post though.

I could use -svy- mean and e(sample) to check the means and then cross

reference this with the -estadd- summ option computes. This would give me

some idea of how the survey design is being taken into account.

I did some quick checking last night and -estout- and -listcoef- do indeed

compute different sd's for my variables. This is not to say they are

radically different but some are enough to make me wonder which to use.

Well, I'm not sure. It takes into account the weights and the -subpop()- option, but -estadd ebsd- just uses plain -summarize- and no adjustment is made for degrees of freedom or so, which I assume would have to if there are strata and/or clusters. What would be the "correct" formula for the SD in this case? Is there a Stata command that computes it? ben On 9/25/07, Carter Rees <carterrees@gmail.com> wrote:Ben,

The command I am using is svy subpop(): nbreg, so yes the subpop option is

specified for my model. Your response seems to indicate that my survey

Thus, maybe -listcoef- isn't recognizing the survey design. (I had no

realreason to assume that -listcoef- was correct vs. -estadd-). I am going to

compare results between the two using your code below and will post a

briefsummary of findings.

I don't know about -listcoef-, but -estadd ebsd- computes the sd using

-summarize- on the observations identified by e(sample) (and e (subpop)

if defined), and applying the appropriate weights. Did you use the

-subpop()- option in your models? This might explain the difference.

If you want tabulate results from listcoef, then do something like the

following:

. nbreg ...

. listcoef, matrix //-matrix- saves results in r(); type -return

list- for details

. matrix b_facts = r(b_facts)

. estadd matrix b_facts = b_facts

. estout ., cell(b b_facts) style(smcl)

PS: A set of -estadd- commands to support the -spost- package is in

preparation.

Statalist, Windows XP, Stata 10 SE. I am using svy: nbreg to run a series of regressions and then using-estout-to format my regression tables. Instead of the raw b's my tablesdisplaythe standardized factor change coefficients via the -estadd- ebsdoption.

All is well and good except the standardized factor change coefficients

don't precisely match those displayed if I check them using - listcoef-,

help. My assumption is that -listcoef- takes into account the survey

designwhen calculating the sd of the independent variables while - estadd- ebsd

maynot. If this is the case, how can I include the standardized factorchangecoef's as computed by -listcoef- in my -estout- generated table? Much appreciated.
