Dear Bert,

It's good that you've got a workaround. In the meantime I was playing around with some suggestions by Jorg Weber in his blog:

http://www.jwe.cc/2012/03/stata-latex-tables-estout/

I quickly adapted and simplified some of his code to get an example to work with the auto dataset. It has the sort of alignment you were looking for, albeit for a different type of Stata commands, and may prove useful at some future time, for you or for me!

I include it below for the record.

Patrick.

Stata Code Below

 sysuse auto

 qui probit foreign weight mpg headroom trunk
	predict pr1, pr
	quietly su pr1
	estadd scalar pr = r(mean)
	estadd margins, dydx(*) atmeans

 est store A

 qui probit foreign weight mpg headroom length
	predict pr2, pr
	quietly su pr2
	estadd scalar pr = r(mean)
	estadd margins, dydx(*) atmeans

 est store B

 qui probit foreign weight mpg headroom weight
	predict pr2_disp, pr
	quietly su pr2_disp
	estadd scalar pr = r(mean)
	estadd margins, dydx(*) atmeans

 est store C


 esttab A B C using table4.tex, replace f ///

Patrick,

Thank you for your suggestion. I couldn't use it directly, since
layout() appears to be a suboption only for stats(), but it led me to
something that worked (see below).

I am posting the code for others' benefit but should emphasize that I
am in well over my head with LaTeX here, so this may be "working" only
by fluke (e.g. is it correct to use @span twice to refer to different
sets of columns?).

Stata code:

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

estpost tabulate rep78 foreign

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

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
