Stata 15 help for set_buildfvinfo

Title

[P] set buildfvinfo -- Build extra factor-variables information into parameter estimates

Syntax

set buildfvinfo {on | off}

Description

set buildfvinfo allows you to control whether to build factor-variables information from the dataset and store it with the column stripe of e(b). This information identifies empty cells in factors and interactions in the column stripe; it also helps identify estimable functions in contrast, margins, and pwcompare.

set buildfvinfo is a programmer's setting that when set off can help speed up simulations and replication-based variance estimation.
