st: Naming estimates from -eststo- and -bysort- |

Dear Statalisters, I am using the ever helpful -estpost- with -bysort- to post summary statistics for subgroups. I need to give specific names the stored estimates in this setup so that I can output them later. In the below examples there is already a stored estimates (named "regression") that I want to keep for later use. Before that I want to output the summary statistics by themselves. If I specify a name for the stored estimates (first attempt below) only the summary statistics for the last subgroup are saved. But I want all subgroups. If I don't specify a name -estpost- will assign one with stub "est" and numbers that depend on how many previous estimates are already stored (in my case the names are est2 and est3, see second attempt below). So one solution is to use $eststo_counter to get the last two estimates for the two subgroups. But I wonder if there is a more direct way? Thanks, Bert *** First attempt, with name *** eststo clear sysuse auto, clear eststo regression: reg price weight mpg quietly bysort foreign: eststo summarystats: estpost summarize price weight mpg * This outputs all stored estimates but only want summary statistics esttab, label nodepvar cells( mean(fmt(2)) sd(par fmt(2)) ) * Stored estimates called "summarystats" but only the last -by- group is available eststo dir *** Second attempt, without name *** eststo clear sysuse auto, clear eststo regression: reg price weight mpg quietly bysort foreign: eststo: estpost summarize price weight mpg * This outputs all stored estimates but only want summary statistics esttab, label nodepvar cells( mean(fmt(2)) sd(par fmt(2)) ) * Stored estimates are called est2, est3 eststo dir * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
