The parmest command
The parmest command follows any Stata command that produces parameter estimates, and saves the results in a Stata dataset, the Results window, and/or the log file. It saves the results as one observation per parameter in a Stata dataset. You can format the results for printing and publication, e.g. rounding estimates to 2 decimal places.
Parmest does not come with the Stata software but is available through the SSC archive. If you are not on the CPC network, you can download the latest parmest package by typing at a Stata command line:
ssc install parmest
You need to have an active connection to the internet to do this. If you have a copy of parmest but are unsure how recently it was downloaded, install it again using the "replace" option.
Here's an example showing how to save the results of a regress command:
use "t:\statatut\examfac2.dta" reg age factype authorit urbrur femster parmest, saving("c:\tables\reg1.dta", replace)You now have a copy of the results saved in a dataset. To list the results in the Results Window in a format that allows you to copy them to Excel:
use "c:\tables\reg1.dta", clear list parm estimate t p, noobs clean parm estimate t p factype -3.5400133 -4.16595 .00004732 authorit -.56049792 -1.1524406 .25061116 urbrur -2.2121531 -1.4140991 .15899552 femster -3.2143824 -.98375474 .32650721 _cons 51.359101 8.4572685 7.705e-15You can now highlight the table of results, right click, copy table, and paste into Excel.
