Thanks to Kit Baum, a new version of the -bmjcip- package is now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this, or use -adoupdate- if you already have an existing version.

The -bmjcip- package is described as below on my website. The new version is updated to Stata Version 10. It also adds a -headline()- option, which allows the user to set a named variable characteristic of the decoded variables to contain a headline cell for each variable, typically equal to "Estimate", "(95%", "CI(" and "P" for the estimate, lower confidence limit, upper confidence limit and P-value, respectively, although the user can choose non-default headings. This -headline()- option can be useful if the user then lists the data using -list- or -listtex-.

Users of Stata 9 can still download the Stata 9 version of -bmjcip- from my website by typing, in Stata,
net from
and selecting and downloading -bmjcip-.

package bmjcip from

      bmjcip: Format confidence intervals and P-values for medical journals

      bmjcip reformats a list of numeric variables, containing estimates,
      confidence limits and (optionally) P-values, to string variables,
      containing the same values formatted for presentation in medical
      journals.  The new string variables replace the old numeric
      variables, and have the same names, variable labels, variable
      characteristics, and positions in the dataset.  bmjcip is usually
      used in output datasets (or resultssets) produced by the parmest
      package, and the reformatted string variables are later output
      using the listtex package for input to Microsoft Word or other word
      processors.  It requires the sdecode package in order to work.  The
      sdecode, parmest and listtex packages can all be downloaded from
