Re: st: How to add Q stats from -wntestq- to -esttab- table (hopefully with -estadd-) |

I don't see much advantage of -eststo- over the official -estimates store-, with which you may not be familiar. -estimates- are as close as Stata gets to R objects, with -e(whatever)- being essentially results$whatever. -estadd-, on the other hand, is immensely helpful. In your R to Stata work, you would also find that you would need to declare temporary variables explicitly with -tempvar-, and use local macro names for these. (It actually provides a better locality control than R objects that can seep through the program interfaces and produce unpredictable results. In Stata, variables in the data set are ALWAYS global, and the macros in a program are ALWAYS local.) Hence your programmatic solution would look like program define arima_plus_wntestq version 11 syntax varlist , estname( name ) [ * ] quietly { arima `varlist', `options' tempvar res predict `res', residuals wntestq `res' estadd scalar Q = r(stat) estadd scalar df_Q = r(df) estadd scalar p_Q = r(p) estimates store `estname' } end // of arima_plus_wntestq Another thing about R to Stata change is that you can rely on the official Stata commands doing good job with backwards compatibility, but you should rarely expect such of the user-written command. In other words, in your own programs, you would want to use as little user-written stuff as needed for them to work. (There is no built-in mechanisms to resolve dependencies, but you as the author of the program may build rudimentary tools for that. More typically, I put whatever -ssc install- packages I need at the top of my do-file, rather than in ado-files and programs themselves.)
