Yet another program to create publication-quality tables


  • Tamás Bartus

Stata users have developed several programs to create publication-quality documents containing regression results (outreg, outreg2, outtex, estout), tables of statistics (tabout), and contents of matrices (outtable). So far, less effort has been made to enable the easy publication of other kinds of tables, such as those displaying the definitions of variables and summary statistics. Although the sophisticated estout package can create tables other than regression results, the underlying mechanism of posting results as if they were estimation results has limitations, and removing these limitations should involve additional programming. The user-written command publish (working title) is intended for users with limited knowledge in programming. It creates publication-quality documents (HTML, MS Word, or LaTeX) that may consist of tables displaying the following elements: definitions of variables, codebooks, summary statistics, one-way and two-way frequencies, various statistics, or estimation results. Users can create large tables where results are separately shown for various subsamples or for several cross-tabulations with a common dependent variable. Users can combine different sorts of elementary tables. Users can also publish matrices of part of the data in memory and create empty tables into which results from other tables can be pasted. Controlling the layout of the table and the column titles and supercolumn titles is also easily done using a small number of common options.
