Re: st: Multiplying coefficients and standard errors in -estout- |

Thanks Maarten and Kit. Scaling the regressor will do the trick and solves my problem. My general preference is to change reported estimates rather than the underlying data. Multiplying by 100 seems like an easy task, especially since -estout- can transform coefficients (and presumably se. if I could figure out how). Of course I am willing to compromise that principle to get my problem fixed -- thanks for your suggestions! Maarten, in my context the linear probability model fits quite well. Your point is well taken and in fact my logit marginal effects are very similar. For better or worse economists tend to like LPM, see e.g. page 107 in Angrist and Pischke* for a common view. Cheers, Bert PS Apologies for not specifying: as you guessed my -estout- is from SSC. I use Stata/SE 10.1 * Angrist and Pischke (2009) "Mostly Harmless Econometrics", http://books.google.com/books?id=bUZzyXeV1JUC On Mon, Feb 1, 2010 at 7:52 AM, Kit Baum <baum@bc.edu> wrote: > <> > > As you're using a LPM, why don't you just scale the regressors /100? > > On Feb 1, 2010, at 2:33 AM, Bert wrote: > >> I am reporting coefficients from a linear probability model using >> - -estout- and -esttab-.
