[R] estimates describe -- Describe estimation results


estimates describe

estimates describe name

estimates describe using filename [, number(#)]


Statistics > Postestimation


estimates describe describes the current (active) estimates. Reported are the command line that produced the estimates, any title that was set by estimates title, and any notes that were added by estimates notes.

estimates describe name does the same but reports results for estimates stored by estimates store.

estimates describe using filename does the same but reports results for estimates saved by estimates save. If filename contains multiple sets of estimates (saved in it by estimates save, append), the number of sets of estimates is also reported. If filename is specified without an extension, .ster is assumed.


number(#) specifies that the #th set of estimation results from filename be described. This assumes that multiple sets of estimation results have been saved in filename by estimates save, append. The default is number(1).
