I am new to latex and I am trying to get a standard albeit large stargazer table into my paper. My goal is that the table is still centered but a bit larger then the text size. I want to maximize readeability. I want to keep it on a normal A4 paper.

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}

\begin{table}[!htbp] \centering

  • Welcome to TeX SX! You probably should use longtable. – Bernard Jun 26 '18 at 11:43
  • Fitting the table onto a single page is most likely impossible, especially, if you want to 'maximize readability' and only want the table to be 'a bit larger then the text size'. You coud either split the table into two (one that shows the columns labelled (1)-(3) and another table for the remaining columns) or consider rotating the whole table to allow it to be wider. Redesigning the contents of the 'F Statistic' row might additionally help. – leandriis Jun 26 '18 at 11:56
  • Do you really need three decimals? And show both the starts and p values? And show "p=" in every cell instead of simply "p value" in first column? Another idea to gain space: highlight significant cells by colors instead of starts. – Fran Jun 26 '18 at 20:58

Everything can be regulated via stargazer. I changed to:

omit.stat = c("f","adj.rsq"), 
font.size = "footnotesize", 
column.sep.width = "1pt", 
single.row = TRUE,
digits=2,
no.space = TRUE

As I don't need the F-Statistic and the adjusted r-square. Changing font to footnotesize is a pretty extreme yet fine solution (for me).
