1 Making Working & Publication-style Tables in Stata See also the course’s documents ‘Making Contingency Tables in Stata’ and ‘Editing Stata estab and outreg2 Tables in MS-Word’. Gary Klass, “How to Construct Bad Charts and Graphs” http://lilt.ilstu.edu/gmklass/pos138/datadisplay/badchart.htm Gary Klass, “Presenting Data: Tabular and graphic display of social indicators” http://lilt.ilstu.edu/gmklass/pos138/datadisplay/ Jon Kolko, “Edward Tufte” (on principles of data presentation) http://facultypages.scad.edu/~jkolko/_IACT370_InformationArchitecture/IACT370_0 5_TuftePrinciples.pdf Note: Copying tables directly from the Stata Results-window to MS-Word works well if MS-Word is formatted to display Courier 11 point or less (which is a fixed-space font). If necessary you can then change to a proportionally spaced font (such as Times New Roman) in MS-Word, but doing so may involve considerable formatting (see the course web document ‘Editing estab and outreg2 Tables in MS-Word’). Here are examples of Stata table-making commands, which you can obtain by using ‘findit,’ ‘help,’ Stata listserv, ‘UCLA Resources for Learning Stata’, and ‘ssc whatsnew.’ § tabstat, statsmat, tablemat, fsum, and tabform: summary tables (see also ‘findit …’ for svytabs and svytabform). § tabout: publication-style summary and contingency tables (see also svytabs and svytabform). § mkcorr, corrtab, and makematrix: publication-style correlation matrices. § The combination of eststo and esttab (which is a spin-off from estout; see below): not only displays publication-style regression tables in the Stata results window, but also can directly produce them in Word or Excel, and output them to LaTeX. § outreg2: can directly create regression tables in Word or Excel, and output them to LaTeX.
