Questions: I have time and location dummies which I want to include in the regression, but do not want to report them in the regression nested tables created with asdoc. How can I do that?

If you have not already installed asdoc, you can install it from SSC by typing the following in the Stata command window:

ssc install asdoc

Let’s use an example data set.

use http://fintechprofessor.com/regdata.dta, clear

This dataset has four main independent variables, named as x1, x2, x3, x4 and a set of possible dummy variables that will be constructed from the variable year (from 2001-2005) and location (from 1-3). Let us estimated the following regression:

`asdoc reg y x1 x2 x3 i.year i.location, nest drop(i.year i.location) replace `

asdoc reg y x1 x2 x4 i.year i.location, nest drop(i.year i.location)

### Explanations

In the above two lines, we have estimated two regressions and sent their output to a Word file. In the first line, we estimated a regression with the three main independent variables *x1, x2*, and *x3* and included the *year* and *location* dummies on the fly. The option * nest *will create a nested regression table. The option

**drops these dummy variables from the regression table, however, they are included in the main regression. The two lines produce the following regression table in MS Word.**

*drop(i.year i.location)*

HPNovember 19, 2018 at 4:49 amIs there any option to include Year_Dum Yes or no Location_dum yes or no in the results? If we want to include the order of the variables in the table such as _cons x1 x2 x3 etc, do we have options?

Attaullah ShahNovember 19, 2018 at 7:25 amHP: yes, we can add it. I have shown that in my YouTube video in much details. However, if you want a quick answer, see the following code:

YılmazNovember 14, 2019 at 4:50 amHi Proffesor, I want to drop(i.year i.location) but dont want to nest. When I try it, nothing change. can u help me

without nest your code:

asdoc reg y x1 x2 x3 i.year i.location, drop(i.year i.location) replace add(Year dummies, yes, location dummies, yes)

Thank you for the great work. Is there a way to order the variables in the regression table. Given

Observations 50 50

R-squared .666 .669

Year dummies yes yes

location dummies yes yes

Want to present as

Year dummies yes yes

location dummies yes yes

Observations 50 50

R-squared 66.60% 66.90%

Thank you.
