FSUM: Stata module to generate and format summary statistics
Abstractfsum is a general purpose summary statistic program. Its display can be formatted with appropriate labels and variable formats so that its output can be pasted into a word processor without the need for further alterations within the word processor. fsum provides summary statistics, including N, # missing, percent missing, mean, variance, standard deviation, standard error, P1, P5, P25, median, P75, P95, P99, minimum, maximum, confidence intervals, sum, and percent for 0/1 variables. It can also display categories of a variable in a manner similar to tabulate. fsum allows Stata labels and special user-defined labels. Display width is automatically adjusted for variable and label length. Column width is adjustable by format, and variable labels are available optionally. nlabel provides a simple way to simultaneously create labels, nlabels, notes, etc.
