st: strange labels in outreg2

 From Martin Hällsten To statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject st: strange labels in outreg2 Date Tue, 03 May 2011 16:02:33 +0200

```Dear statalist,

I use outreg2 frequently with the label option. I recently discovered
```
that the labels get messed up when one combines estimates from the logit and ologit (with different outcomes) - maybe this generalises to other combinations as well.
```
```
I can't remember this behaviour, and I wonder whether someone has a clue what produces it. It does not show up when one creates separate tables.
```
```
Here's how the table looks like (what bothers me is the "hiprice:weight" etc. labels int the SINGLE equation)
```

(1)	(2)
m1	m2
EQUATION	VARIABLES	LABELS	hiprice	priceorder

priceorder	weight	Weight (lbs.)		0.00133
(0.000880)
length	Length (in.)		0.00142
(0.0295)
SINGLE	hiprice:weight		0.00138
(0.00104)
hiprice:length		-0.00714
(0.0359)
hiprice:Constant		-3.765
(4.070)
cut1	Constant	Constant		3.570
(3.242)
cut2	Constant	Constant		5.308
(3.277)

Observations		74	74
Standard errors in parentheses
*** p<0.01, ** p<0.05, * p<0.1

and this is the code that produced it:

. clear
. sysuse auto

. recode price (3000/6000 =0)               (6000/max=1), gen(hiprice)
. recode price (3000/4500 =0) (4500/6000=1) (6000/max=2), gen(priceorder)

. logit  hiprice  weight length
. est store m1
. ologit priceorder  weight length
. est store m2

```
. outreg2 [m1 m2] using "table", replace label /* appears with strange labels */
```. outreg2 [m1]    using "table_1", replace label /* looks ok */
. outreg2 [m2]    using "table_2", replace label /* looks ok */

Does anyone have a clue?

All the best

Martin
