st: LaTeX in variable labels for esttab |

Dear Statalist, I have a question about creating LaTeX tables using esttab (version 2.0.5 09mar2009, downloaded by -net install estout.pkg-). I would like to include LaTeX markup in the variable labels. For example, suppose I have a variable rho_1 and I would like it to appear in the table as a rho symbol with a 1 subscript. In stata, I create the label as follows" label variable rho_1 "$\rho_{1}$" and call esttab using the label option. However, esttab protects the underscore character by adding a backslash, so the LaTeX code that is created is: $\rho\_{1}$ and what appears in the compiled pdf is a rho symbol, followed by an underscore, followed by a 1 (not as a subscript). Is there a way to turn off this protection? (Which, of course, makes a great deal of sense in many contexts.) Best, BL PS - Stata 11.2 SE on Windows 7 64 bit, with the same phenomenon observed on Stata 12. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
