A new command for plotting regression coefficients and other estimates
Graphical display of regression results has become increasingly popular in presentations and the scientific literature because, in many cases, graphs are much easier to read than tables. In Stata, such plots can be produced by the marginsplot command. However, while marginsplot is very versatile and flexible, it has two major limitations: it can process only results left behind by margins, and it can handle only one set of results at a time. In this presentation, I will introduce a new command called coefplot, which overcomes these limitations. It plots results from any estimation command and combines results from several models into a single graph. The default behavior of coefplot is to plot markers for coefficients and horizontal spikes for confidence intervals. However, coefplot can also produce various other types of graphs. The capabilities of coefplot are illustrated using a series of examples.
