Subject   st: New version of -ingap- for SSC

Thanks to Kit Baum, a new version of the -ingap- package is now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this, or -adoupdate- if you already have an old version.

The -ingap- command is described as below on my website. The new version has the same ado-files as before, but the on-line help has been updated to encourage users to use -listtab- instead of -listtex-, although both of these packages are still available, and will continue to be. The Stata Journal reference now has a hyperlink to the Stata Journal website.

Best wishes

ingap: Insert gap observations in a dataset

ingap inserts gap observations into a list of positions in an existing data
set. All existing variables in the dataset will have missing values in the
gap observations, unless the user specifies otherwise. Often, the user
specifies non-missing values in the gap observations for one particular
existing string variable, known as the row label variable. This row label
variable may then be output with a list of other variables to form a
publication-ready table with labelled gap rows, using the listtab package.
Alternatively, the row label variable may be encoded, using the sencode
package, to form a numeric variable with value labels. This numeric variable
can then be plotted on one axis of a graph to define axis labels, including
gap axis labels. The sencode and listtab packages are downloadable from SSC
or from this website.
