title: A demonstration of showing 'mtable' results in HTML format

A demonstration of showing mtable results in HTML format

First, we load the package and estimate some regression models.

library(memisc) lm0 <- lm(sr ~ pop15 + pop75, data = LifeCycleSavings) lm1 <- lm(sr ~ dpi + ddpi, data = LifeCycleSavings) lm2 <- lm(sr ~ pop15 + pop75 + dpi + ddpi, data = LifeCycleSavings)

Next, we put them together into a table with mtable().

mtable123 <- mtable("Model 1"=lm0,"Model 2"=lm1,"Model 3"=lm2, summary.stats=c("sigma","R-squared","F","p","N"))

Third, we improve the appearance of the results by relabeling the mtable object.

mtable123 <- relabel(mtable123, "(Intercept)" = "Constant", pop15 = "Percentage of population under 15", pop75 = "Percentage of population over 75", dpi = "Real per-capita disposable income", ddpi = "Growth rate of real per-capita disp. income" )

Finally we view the results in HTML format.

show_html(mtable123)

The results can be written into an HTML file using write_html(mtable123,file="mtable123.html") or the like. MS Word or LibreOffice can import such a file.

[^1]: Unfortunately, LibreOffice currently seems to do a less than perfect job in importing HTML tables. The columns are a bit too wide and need to be adjusted by hand as do the skips after paragraphs. The example you find at the link mentioned above is thus manually adjusted.
