Hello all,

I'm trying to generate a summary statistics table for a set of different 
samples (each sample in its own column in the table). After a fair amount 
of trying and failing, I was able to get the table working, except for one 
problem. I have a set of statistics for which I do not want to report the 
standard deviation because it doesn't make sense to do so. However, I want 
to report sd's for the other statistics in the table. Is there some way to 
selectively suppress sd's and only report the means? So far I've tried 
using estadd to add a scalar that is equal to the r(mean), but have run 
into problems because I'm doing this for multiple samples (is there a way 
to incorporate estadd into the -by- statement as well?). I've copied my 
code below. The variables for which I want to suppress the sd's are 
passedRdg and passedMth. Any advice you may have is appreciated.

bysort model: eststo: estpost tabstat prof_adv_* testpart* passedRdg 
passedMth , statistics(mean sd) columns(statistics);
esttab using $output/summstats.tex, replace
  mtitles("Sample A" "Sample B" "Sample C" "Sample D" "Sample E")
