From estimation output to document tables: a long way made short
Postestimation processing and formatting of statistical results for input into document tables are tasks that most of us have to do. However, processing results by hand can be tedious, and is prone to error. There are therefore many benefits to automating these tasks while at the same time retaining user flexibility in terms of output format and accessibility. This talk is concerned with such automation processes, primarily focusing on tabulating results from estimation commands. In the first part of the talk, I briefly review existing approaches and user-written programs and then provide an extensive tutorial on the -estout- package. Compiling estimation tables for display on screen and for inclusion into, e.g., LaTeX, Word, or Excel documents is illustrated using a range of examples, from relatively basic applications to complex ones. In the second part of the talk, I draw on material from J. Scott Long’s presentation last year and introduce some new utilities to tabulate results from Long and Freese’s SPost commands for categorical outcomes models.
