Stata Code Examples

Reproducible research with Stata

I have recently become aware of a Stata package called MarkDoc. It process the scml file and runs the result through pandoc to produce pdf, html, docx, and other output. It is kind of buggy and not well documented, but the .ado files are small enough to follow and fix if needed.

MarkDoc Package 2.1
MARKDOC: Stata module to convert SMCL logfiles to Markdown format
Dynamic documents in Stata: MarkDoc, Ketchup, and Weaver (pdf)

Stata output as PDF

cd "f:\some\path\"
log using log_file_name, replace
(do some work; produce a graph)
roccomp sepsis logodds_a logodds_b logodds_ab, summary name(some_graph)
graph export some_graph.pdf, replace
log close
translate log_file_name.smcl log_file_name.pdf

How to draw maps with Stata

In Stata, how to display p-value to higher precision after a regression

* Run the regression.
poisson total_cost post, exposure(count) irr
* Display p-value to higher precision.
local z=_b[post]/_se[post]
disp `z'
local p=2*normal(-abs(`z'))
disp "p=`p'"
* Here is another way to display to higher precision.
estimates table, p(%12.10g)

Running Stata as a batch job

$ cd dirname
$ nohup stata -b do mydofile &
