Treatment effect graphs

Visualizing treatment effects on multiple outcomes with Stata is now easy! Here's an example using forest:

forest visualizes results from multiple regressions on a single independent variable. The resulting "forest" chart shows the effect of a single treatment variable of interest on a set of independent variables. It can display raw coefficients, standardized effect sizes (Cohen's d), or odds ratios (from logistic regressions). It can also make Bonferroni corrections to the confidence intervals for multiple comparisons.

forest is available on SSC and is open for development on GitHub. Submit bugs and feature requests here. If you like forest, be sure to visit my homepage and Stata boilerplate code.
