I wrote a short talk demonstrating the use the R package {estout} for tonight’s New England R Users Group meeting.  NB this is not a discussion of the econometric model, but rather a demonstration of how to get publication-quality results out of R efficiently.

The basic functions of {estout} are modeled on the Stata package estout. Once the R user has a dataset and a regression format in memory, {estout} will

  1. Print tables of summary statistics in CSV or LaTeX format.
  2. Print regression results in CSV or LaTeX format.

All the normal bells and whistles for econometrics are in there: reporting both coefficient estimates and their standard errors, asterisks for alpha=0.10, 0.05, and 0.01 significance levels, R-squared and number of observations. Options to customize are clearly marked in the documentation.
