GRPVARS: Stata module to create and manage variable groups

Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics

Abstract: grpvars is a collection of commands to create and manage variable groups. A variable group is essentially a list of variables saved in a global macro with the name specified by the name() option. grpvars commands can conveniently manipulate these macros, and maintain their properties in memory. This is especially useful for managing sets of variables to be used in several tables. For example, you can specify the base model for the whole project, and rather than redefining the global macro for the variable list, add/remove/replace variables according to the specific needs of the current table. This enables one to more easily narrate the variable selection process. grpvars also maintains $refcat global macro if option title option is specified, to be used in estout.
