Clustered Standard Errors in STATA

In STATA clustered standard errors are obtained by adding the option cluster(variable_name) to your regression, where variable_name specifies the variable that defines the group / cluster in your data. The summary output will return clustered standard errors. Here is the syntax:

 regress x y, cluster(variable_name)

Below you will find a tutorial that demonstrates how to Continue reading Clustered Standard Errors in STATA
