Statisticians make their living producing confidence intervals and pvalues. However, those in the Stata log are not ready for delivery to the end user, who usually wants to see statistical output either as a plot or as a table. This article describes a suite of programs used to convert Stata results to one or other of these forms. The eclplot package creates plots of estimates with confidence intervals, and the listtex package outputs a Stata dataset in the form of table rows that can be inserted into a plain TeX, LaTeX, HTML, or word processor table. To create a Stata dataset that can be output in these ways, we can use the parmest, dsconcat, and lincomest packages to create datasets with one observation per estimated parameter; the sencode, tostring,...

Socalled “nonparametric” statistical methods are often in fact based on population parameters, which can be estimated (with confidence limits) using the corresponding sample statistics. This article reviews the uses of three such parameters, namely Kendall’s τα Somers’ D, and the Hodges–Lehmann median difference. Confidence intervals for these are demonstrated using the somersd package. It is argued that confidence limits for these parameters, and their differences, are more informative than the traditional practice of reporting only pvalues. These three parameters are also important in defining other tests and parameters, such as the Wilcoxon test, the area under the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve, Harrell’s C, and the Theil median slope.
