st: Reduced Correlation Matrix |

I´m having a problem creating a Correlation table of 6 variables from which I only want a reduced 3x3 correlation matrix to be exported to LaTeX. I´ve been trying to find a stata program to do this directly without using any loop or something handmade, but it seems that there is no program that I can find. I am using Stata 11.2 for Windows. So let us say I have 6 variables from which I would get a 6x6 correlation matrix. For some reasons, I only like to have the correlation of 3 (row) variables with 3 (column) variables. I picture it somewhat to be like this: Var 4 Var5 Var6 Var1 Cor(1,4) Cor(1,5) Cor(1,6) Var2 Cor(2,4) Cor(2,5) Cor(3,6) Var3 Cor(3,4) Cor(3,5) Cor(1,6) added with standard deviation and asterixes for significance. So far I have only come up with a solution to get at least the 3x3 matrix as a stata matrix, which would also work with the standard deviation. mat corr=J(3,3,0) forv i=1(1)3{ forv j=4(1)6{ quietly corr var`i' var`j' mat c=r(C) local cc=c[2,1] mat corr[`i',`j'-3]=`cc' } } mat list corr Is anybody aware of a program or code that would do that, maybe also able to export it to LaTeX? * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/resources/statalist-faq/ * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
