you have to specify which factor variable you want to drop.
Look at this example:

sysuse auto, clear
reg price  mpg i.rep78
est table, drop(2.rep78)
est table, drop(2.rep78 3.rep78)


best, carsten

Hello all,

I run a few specifications then try to drop a factor variable (~300 dummies) but --estimates table-- throws an error.  Am I doing something wrong?  If there is an issue with factor variables, is there a known workaround?


estimates table a1 a2 a3 a4 a5, drop(i.hsacode)
coefficient i.hsacode does not occur in any of the models
r(198);

. estimates table a1 a2 a3 a4 a5, drop(hsacode)
coefficient hsacode does not occur in any of the models
r(198);

. estimates table a1 a2 a3 a4 a5, drop(_hsacode)
coefficient _hsacode does not occur in any of the models
r(198);





BTW, I am using these --estimates table-- within a --texdoc stlog-- block.
