Today when I read the esttab command of Stata, I saw the star options description:
star[(symbol level [...])] causes stars denoting the significance of the coefficients to be printed next to the point estimates. This is the default. Type nostar to suppress the stars. The default symbols and thresholds are: * for p<.05, ** for p<.01, and *** for p<.001. Alternatively, for example, type star(+ 0.10 * 0.05) to set the following thresholds: + for p<.10 and * for p<.05. Note that the thresholds must lie in the (0,1] interval and must be specified in descending order.
I know how to convert it to * for p<0.1, ** for p<0.05, *** for p<0.01 (the commonly-used p-value to set the levels of significance). But I am wondering why Stata set the default like that, is there anything important that I missed?
