Re: st: Getting confidence intervals from lincom

One possibility is to use the -parmest- and -lincomest- packages, both downloadable from SSC. The -lincomest- package is like -lincom-, but saves the results as Stata estimation results. And the -parmest- package inputs a set of estimation results and creates an output dataset (or resultsset) with 1 observation per estimated parameter and data on parameter names, estimates, confidence limits, P-values and other parameter attributes.

For an example of the use of -parmest- and -lincomest- together, see Subsection 3.3 of Newson (2003).

I hope this helps.

Best wishes

Roger

I am using lincom to combine 3 estimates:

lincom(1.District1+1.District2+1.District3)/3

the output table gives the combined estimate and its confidence intervals. However, typing ereturn list and return list I get everything but I do NOT see the confidence interval limits anywhere! (I get the standard error in r(se) and the estimate in r(estimate)).

Please help! What I'd like to do is to write the confidence interval limits to a matrix that I'm creating inside a foreach loop which I will later display.
