LaTeX Question

In an

`rmarkdown`

I'm using

`texreg`

`texreg`

`xtable`

`pander`

`stargazer`

`rmarkdown`

`latex`

`.tex`

As a bonus, I'd also like to be able to put line breaks in table headings. For example, in

`texreg`

`custom.model.names`

`"Add Horsepower and AM"`

`"Add Horsepower \newline and AM"`

Here's a reproducible example:

`---`

title: "Regression Table"

author: "eipi10"

date: "August 15, 2016"

header-includes:

- \usepackage{dcolumn}

output: pdf_document

---

```{r, echo=FALSE, message=FALSE, results="asis"}

library(texreg)

m1 = glm(mpg ~ wt + factor(cyl), data=mtcars)

m2 = glm(mpg ~ wt + factor(cyl) + hp + factor(am), data=mtcars)

texreg(list(m1,m2),

single.row=TRUE,

custom.model.names=c("Base Model", "Add Horsepower and AM"),

custom.coef.names=c("Intercept", "Weight","Cyl: 6", "Cyl: 8", "Horsepower","AM: 1"))

```

And here's what the output table looks like:

Answer

This took quite a bit of wrangling, but I think it gets you close to what you want. I used `xtable`

. The main idea is to create two columns for each model, one aligned right (coefficients) and the other aligned left (standard errors). So for a table with two models, we have five columns. Headers and the summary statistics are displayed in cells that span two columns.

First, we have `header.tex`

, drawing on p. 27 of the `xtable`

vignette:

```
\usepackage{array}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\newcolumntype{L}[1]{>{\raggedright\let\newline\\
\arraybackslash\hspace{0pt}}m{#1}}
\newcolumntype{C}[1]{>{\centering\let\newline\\
\arraybackslash\hspace{0pt}}m{#1}}
\newcolumntype{R}[1]{>{\raggedleft\let\newline\\
\arraybackslash\hspace{0pt}}m{#1}}
\newcolumntype{P}[1]{>{\raggedright\tabularxbackslash}p{#1}}
```

The `.Rmd`

file. I learnt about `add.to.row`

from this answer.
