Tests, predictions, and effects

Hypothesis testing

  • Wald test for linear constraints
  • Wald test (delta method) for nonlinear constraints
  • Likelihood-ratio test after any ML estimation
  • Bonferroni, Holm, and Šidák adjustments for multiple comparisons

Generalized testing

  • Ability to combine separate estimates into one combined estimate
  • Robust covariance matrix of combined estimates
  • Tests of linear and nonlinear combinations of estimates across fitted models
  • Point estimates and confidence intervals of linear and nonlinear combinations of estimates across fitted models

Predictions

  • Ability to obtain predicted values after all estimation commands
  • Predictor types that are tightly coupled to the estimation command
  • Default predicted value that is most relevant to the fitted model

Generalized predictions

  • Linear and nonlinear combinations of
    • Standard predictions
    • Equation index values
    • Estimated coefficients
    • Data
  • Inferential statistics for generalized predictions:
    • Point estimates

Linear and nonlinear combinations of coefficients
