You can do some of this with -cpcorr- from SSC (except that any LaTeXing is completely up to you). . ssc desc cpcorr -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- package cpcorr from http://fmwww.bc.edu/repec/bocode/c -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TITLE 'CPCORR': module for correlations for each row vs each column variable DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S) cpcorr produces a matrix of correlations for rowvarlist versus colvarlist. cpspear does the same for Spearman correlations. This matrix may thus be oblong, and need not be square. Both also allow a single varlist. Author: Nicholas J. Cox, University of Durham Support: email N.J.Cox@durham.ac.uk Distribution-Date: 20010423 INSTALLATION FILES (type net install cpcorr) cpcorr.ado cpcorr.hlp cpspear.ado cpspear.hlp -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (type -ssc install cpcorr- to install) That said, -cpcorr- dates from a time long before Mata. You could get a correlation matrix in Mata and extract a block without using any loops. However, you would also need to label rows and columns. You can also some of this using -corrci- (SJ). The way to do it would be to save results to a separate data set and then reformat. SJ-10-4 pr0041_1 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Software update for corrci (help corrci, corrcii if installed) . . . . . . . . . . . . N. J. Cox Q4/10 SJ 10(4):691 update to fix corrci so that it always saves r-class results SJ-8-3 pr0041 . Speaking Stata: Corr. with confidence, Fisher's z revisited (help corrci, corrcii if installed) . . . . . . . . . . . . N. J. Cox Q3/08 SJ 8(3):413--439 reviews Fisher's z transformation and its inverse, the hyperbolic tangent, and reviews their use in inference with correlations I don't know what you mean by standard deviations here. Do you mean "standard errors"? -corrci- as above supports confidence intervals, as the name implies. Sorry. but none of my programs ever supports significance starring, in my view a practice more suited to restaurant or movie reviews than to science.
