The problem with xtable is that it cannot automatically combine and present results from multiple models, which makes it practically impossible to use it in real research. I have been using the package "memisc" for this, which has been working reasonably well.

@Shige- my work around for this is to extract the information a I want from a given set of models (usually from the summary object) and arrange them in a data frame. Xtable is very friendly with data frames.

You are right, and thanks for the information.


Can you give a simple example, say two OLS regressions presented side by side in the same table using xtable? I don't remember ever seeing anything like that. Thanks.


It's rather sad that we have to generate Latex or HTML code to make an attractive table. With all of our emphasis on visualization, you'd think we'd have the ability to do attractive and more importantly readable tables within the tool instead of needing a browser or Latex interpreter.

Is there some way to keep the significance level i.e. ** in the ethnicity row? Also, is it possible to keep the significance level key that would also show up at the bottom of the output i.e. Signif. codes: 0 ‘***’ 0.001 ‘**’ 0.01 ‘*’ 0.05 ‘.’ 0.1 ‘ ’ 1 ?

nice blog!
