# Exporting Results from Stata to LaTeX

### Regression Results

If you want to export a regression, just use `esttab`. Seriously, it’ll do anything, and has great help files.

### Tables

• Summary Statistics: `sutex` (tutorial)
• Correlation Tables: `corrtex` (tutorial)

#### Custom tables

Custom tables can be trickier in Stata. I usually put things into a matrix, then output the matrix with `outtable`. Not always the best looking, but they work!

Here’s an example that makes a 3 row 4 column matrix of beta estimates for different dependent and independent variables.

```local columns = 4
local independent_vars y1 y2 y3 y4
local rows = 3
local dependent_vars var1 var2 var3
matrix results = J(`rows', `columns', 0)

local c = 1
foreach ou```come in `independent_vars' {
local colnames = "`colnames'``` `outcome'"
local r = 1 foreach variable in `my_vars' { if `r' == 1 { local rownames = "`rownames' name_for_this_row"
} reg `outcome' `variable' `control'
* Store beta value matrix results[`r, `c']=_b[`variable']
* Update row number
local r = `r' + 1
}
* Update column number
local c = `c' + 1 } * Export results matrix rownames results= `rownames' matrix colnames results= `colnames' matrix list results outtable using /path/for/results,  mat(results) replace ///
format(%9.3f) /// caption("your caption here") /// clabel(latex_label_here)```

### Simple Statistics

``````* First, calculate a statistic and store in a macro.
sum var1, d
local statistic = r(max)```

* Then use this code to set the formatting.
* This says "show it with 2 decimal places."
* Display lets you check it.

local cleaned_statistic: display %9.2f `statistic'
display "`cleaned_statistic'"

* Write to disk.
* This syntax looks odd, but what it's doing is creating
* a "handle" to a file, writing to that handle,
* then closing the file when done.

file open myfile using /path/to/results/statistic.tex, ///
write text replace
file write myfile "`cleaned_statistic'"
file close myfile```

Then in LaTeX, we just integrate with the `\input{}` command.

`Further, the variable achieves a maximum value of \input{/path/to/results/statistic.tex}, much lower than perhaps we had thought!`
