Making regression tables simplified

  • Ben Jann

Registered author(s):

estout, introduced by Jann (2005), is a useful tool for producing regression tables from stored estimates. However, its syntax is relatively complex and commands may turn out lengthy even for simple tables. Furthermore, having to store the estimates beforehand can be a bit cumbersome. To facilitate the production of regression tables, I therefore present two new commands called esto and esta. esto is a wrapper for official Stata’s estimates store and simplifies the storing of estimation results for tabulation. For example, esto does not require the user to provide names for the stored estimation sets. esta, on the other hand, is a wrapper for estout and simplifies compiling nice-looking tables from the stored estimates without much typing. Basic applications of the commands and usage of esta with external software such as LaTeX, Word, or Excel will be illustrated by a range of examples.
