A linear probability model is in most disciplines considered as a model that has only didactic value as a starting point for "serious" models for binary dependent variables like -logit- and -probit-. So you probably don't want to use that model. However, to answer your question: The easiest way is to multiply your dependent variable with 100 before estimating your model, as in the example below: *---------- begin example ----------- sysuse auto, clear gen for100 = foreign*100 eststo: reg foreign mpg rep78 eststo: reg for100 mpg rep78 esttab, se *------------ end example ------------ ( For more on how to use examples I sent to statalist see: http://www.maartenbuis.nl/stata/exampleFAQ.html Hope this helps, Maarten Ps. remember that you are asked to report where you have gotten user written programs from. I am assuming you got -estout- by typing in Stata -ssc install estout-. -------------------------- Maarten L.
