RCTABLE: Stata module to create a table used in randomized controlled trials

Programming Language



rctable creates a simple table to be used mainly in Randomized Controlled Trials or in experimental settings where a treatment group is compared to a comparison group. rctable creates a table in your dataset and, if save option is specified, exports the table in an excel, csv or text format. The variables created are then dropped. Beware, the save option includes a replace suboption by default. Without option save, rctable just run the regressions. The table created has dependent variables in rows and has 7 columns: dependent variable names (VAR), dependent variable labels (LAB), number of observations (N_ind), number of clusters (N_clust), the average of the two groups (AV), the control average (C), the difference between treatment and control (T-C). The csv or text document created with option save can readily be used. It can also be linked to a xls or xlsx document. That way, the xls or xlsx document can be formatted and edited independently while the csv can be updated.
