OUTSUM: Stata module to write formatted descriptive statistics to a text file

Kerry Papps ()

Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics

Abstract: outsum writes means and standard deviations to an external text file, in much the same way outreg produces formatted regression output, i.e. it creates an ASCII text file with columns separated with tab characters and standard deviations displayed in parentheses below the means. The major difference is that the user must specify a varlist (using wildcards or hyphenated syntax) directly. As in outreg, the using clause specifies the name of the new or existing ASCII file that will contain the means and standard deviations.
