Here is an example, although storage in a variable is not exactly
recommended. Note the last line which shows you how to get the correct name
for the coefficient...
*************
sysuse auto, clear
gen logmpg=ln(mpg)
gen loglength=log(len)
gen logturn=log(turn)
reg logmpg loglength logturn
*store in variable
gen mycoeff=_b[loglength]
l mycoeff in 1/10, noo
reg, coeflegend

Betreff: st: Creating a variable taking the value of elasticity
Dear Statalist,
I have a simple dataset containing two variables, x and y. I regress
ln(y) on ln(x) and observe the coefficient on x as elasticity. I then
want to create a variable taking the value of this coefficient. How
would I do this? Something like local elas=e(b); gen elas=`elas',
except e(b) contains all the coefficients, and I just want one.
A related question: when I regress y on x and then input "mfx, eyex,"
the ey/ex value is not the same as the coefficient I obtain using
regress ln(y) ln(x). Why? Also: how would I extract the ey/ex value
from the mfx output in order to create a variable taking that value?
Thank you,
Dorothy
