**stargazer** is a new R package that creates LaTeX code for well-formatted regression tables, with multiple models side-by-side, as well as for summary statistics tables. It can also output the content of data frames directly into LaTeX. Compared to available alternatives, **stargazer** excels in three regards: its ease of use, the large number of models it supports, and its beautiful aesthetics.

### Ease of use

**stargazer **was designed with the user’s comfort in mind. The learning curve is very mild and all arguments are very intuitive, so that even a beginning user of R or LaTeX can quickly become familiar with the package’s many capabilities. The package is intelligent, and tries to minimize the amount of effort the user has to put into adjusting argument values. If **stargazer** is given a set of regression model objects, for instance, the package will create a side-by-side regression table. By contrast, if the user feeds it a data frame, **stargazer** will know that the user is most likely looking for a summary statistics table or – if the **summary** argument is set to false – wants to output the content of the data frame.

A quick reproducible example shows just how easy **stargazer** is to use. You can install **stargazer** from CRAN in the usual way:

install.packages("stargazer") library(stargazer) |
