LASSO in Stata
Crossvaldiation By default, stata will select model with highest lambda. By default, stata fits up to 100 models with varying lambdas. The model with largest out of sample r-square and minimum CV mean prediction error gets selected by cross-validation LASSO commands SSC Addons based methods Stabdard Lasso estimation commands Lasso

Compact Results of Logistic Regression in Stata using ‘estout’ – ‘logisticresults’
After running a logistic regression in Stata, for inclusion in classical tables, one needs the Odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals. I have developed a small code snippet for getting reasonably compact unstyled results that can be easily copy-pasted in word or excel. This actts as a thin wrapper for
