I think you want to override the automatic alignment. I think you may be able to achieve that by adding: layout("\multicolumn{1{c}{@}")

That and much more is discussed here:

Dear Statalist,

I am trying to create a simple twoway tabulation table in LaTeX using
the excellent user-written esttab command (version 2.0.5, part of the
estout package).

I am reporting both observation counts and row percentages, with the
value labels as column headers. Everything looks great using the code
below, but I would like to make one minor modification: center the
column headers between the observation count and row percent columns.

That is, currently the column header ("Domestic", "Foreign", "Total")
appears directly above the observation count column, I would like to
shift these slightly to the right so that the span both the
observation count and row percent columns. An example of what I would
like to do is found in Table 1 of the tabout tutorial, page 13 of
http://www.ianwatson.com.au/stata/tabout_tutorial.pdf.

Any advice?

Best,
BL

Stata code:

set more off
estimates clear
sysuse auto
local rowvar_label : variable label rep78
local colvar_label : variable label foreign

estpost tabulate rep78 foreign

esttab using esttab-example.tex, booktabs replace ///
	cell("b rowpct(fmt(2))") collabels("N" "Row Pct") ///
	unstack nonote noobs nonumber ///
	eqlabels(, lhs("`rowvar_label'")) ///
	nomtitles ///
	mgroups("`colvar_label'", pattern(1 0 0)    ///
        prefix(\multicolumn{@span}{c}{) suffix(})   ///
        span erepeat(\cmidrule(lr){@span}))
