## Cross-references in LaTeX

A question came up in the
Stata forum
regarding cross-references in `markstat`

documents.
If you are generating PDF via LaTeX, you can rely on LaTeX to handle numbering
and references. I have written a short example showing how this can be done.
Here are links to the script and resulting pdf file

A later question dealt with cross-referencing a table created with `esttab`

.
Hat tip to Giovanni Colitti for providing a solution: just use the `title()`

option and include a LaTeX `\label{id}`

when specifying the table title.
For more information see the
Stata forum post.

Unfortunately, these solutions work for LaTeX only. I have been looking for
more general solutions that work with other output formats. So far the best
I have found is Nicolai Yakimovâ€™s pandoc-crossref filter, which you can find at
https://github.com/lierdakil/pandoc-crossref.
I am considering incorporating this filter in a future markstat update.
Comments welcome.
