A new system for formatting estimation tables

John Luke Gallup

Abstract.  I present an entirely rewritten version of the outreg command, which creates tables from the results of Stata estimation commands and generates formatted Microsoft Word or LATEX files. My objective is to provide as complete control as is practical over the layout and formatting of the estimation tables in both file formats. outreg provides a wide range of estimation statistics (including confidence intervals and marginal effects), can control the number and arrangement of the statistics displayed, and can merge subsequent estimation results into the same table. Users can specify numeric formats, font sizes, and font types at the table cell level, as well as lines in the table and row spacing. Multiple tables can be written to the same document, making it possible to create a fully formatted statistical appendix from a do-file. I demonstrate in examples the numerous formatting options for the outreg command.
