st: RE: RE: RE: 2 -estout- queries

No need to answer the last query. I have found the answer (ie use the -label- option of -estout-).

Thanks to Ben for his very helpful reply to my queries. (I had noticed the -lhs()- suboption, but had not succeeded in making it work.)

One more query. Does -estout- have any way of saving, in its output spreadsheet, the variable labels of the X-variables (or even the Y-vatiables)? This capability would be similar to the -label- and -ylabel- options of -parmest-. I am aware of the -varlabels()- option of -estout-, but this seems to require the user to input the variable labels of the X-variables manually one by one. (Ideally, I would like to be able to use -descsave- and -factext- to reconstruct factor values in a dataset created by -insheet-ing the output spreadsheet, and then to use these with -eclplot-, in the manner of Newson (2003).)

Thanks in advance

Roger

Roger asks: > 1. Is there a way of suppressing the table heading [in estout]?

The table header is composed of several elements (model labels and column labels, possibly equation labels and model groups labels). Each element can be suppressed manually using the -none- label suboption. Example:

. sysuse auto, clear (1978 Automobile Data)

. egen c_mpg = cut(mpg), group(7)

. ta c_mpg, nofreq gen(c_)

. qui regress weight c_1-c_6, noconst

. estout, cells("b ci_l ci_u") mlabels(, none) collabels(, none)

c_1 4103 3499.693 4706.307 c_2 3536.25 2861.732 4210.768 c_3 3323.333 2687.392 3959.275 c_4 3272.727 2697.496 3847.958 c_5 2848.462 2319.326 3377.597 c_6 2336.667 1785.925 2887.408

Furthermore: > 2. Is there a way of inserting text into the blank cell above the column > of X-variable names?

There is a -lhs()- label suboption. Example:

. estout, cells("b ci_l ci_u") collabels(, lhs(xvar))

. xvar b min95 max95 c_1 4103 3499.693 4706.307 c_2 3536.25 2861.732 4210.768 c_3 3323.333 2687.392 3959.275 c_4 3272.727 2697.496 3847.958 c_5 2848.462 2319.326 3377.597 c_6 2336.667 1785.925 2887.408
