Stephen Okiya has asked the following question
I notice that the variable names are truncated in spite of using the option abb(100). Do you know why this is the case?
asdoc uses the abbrev() function of Mata. For some reasons, the abbrev() function splits the following sentence in half, no matter which value we set for the abbreviation.
loc vari " Child's age when she/he was first fed something other than breast milk" . dis abbrev("`vari'", 32) Child's age when she/he was firs . dis abbrev("`vari'", 100) Child's age when she/he was firs
However, we set the second argument of abbrev() function to missing, then the full sentence is show
. dis abbrev("`vari'", .) Child's age when she/he was first fed something other than breast milk
Therefore, if we prefer not to abbreviate any name or label, just provide missing value for the abb() option of asdoc. So the following will show all the text
asdoc sum Q85, label abb(.)
