Make Pretty Regression Tables in Stata

The estout package for Stata is useful for quickly creating nicely formatted tables from a regression analysis for tables or papers. To install it, fire up Stata and type in this command:

ssc install estout, replace

Stata will automatically download and install the package. Run the regression as you normally would, then use the esttab command (part of the estout package) to create a table using those results. See their examples to see how the command works.

Click the thumbnail below to check out the difference. The top half is Stata's default output. The bottom is estout's formatted output.


  1. Can this be done with SPSS?

  2. No idea. I haven't used SPSS (or Stata, for that matter) in years. I'm exclusively R nowadays.
