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

The -bmjcip- package is described as below on my website. The new version adds a new option -starvar()-, specifying a string variable to be appended to the decoded P-value variable (if one is present), or to the decoded uper confidence limit variable (if no P-value variable is present). This -starvar()- variable typically contains stars or other footnote indicators.

The -starvar()- option has also been added to the Stata Version 10 version of -bmjcip-, which users can download from my website by typing, in Stata,

net from "";

and selecting and installing -bmjcip-.

Best wishes

package bmjcip from

      bmjcip: Format confidence intervals and P-values for medical journals

      bmjcip reformats a list of numeric variables, containing estimates
      and/or confidence limits and/or P-values, to string variables,
      containing the same values formatted for presentation in medical
      journals.  The new string variables replace the old numeric
      variables, and have the same names, variable labels, variable
      characteristics, and positions in the dataset.  bmjcip is usually
      used in output datasets (or resultssets) produced by the parmest
      package, and the reformatted string variables are usually later
      output using the listtab package, for input to Microsoft Word or
      other word processors.  It requires the sdecode package in order to
      work.  The sdecode, parmest and listtab packages can all be
      downloaded from SSC.
