LABSUMM: Stata module to generate summary table with variable labels


  • Thomas Steichen



program labsumm.ado generates standard summarize output but with variable labels in place of variable names (if the label exists). This program will not accept the detail or meanonly options, nor will it work with the 'by varlist:' prefix (you could use Patrick Royston's byvar, published in STB-27 to get around this limitation). The program will accept the format option but if the display format is wider than 10 characters then the column headers will not align with the statistics below. Lastly, although it will correctly compute weighted statistics, it will not display a column containing the weight.
