This was the subject of a long discussion on the list earlier this year. You cannot perform formal tests when the coefficients are not being estimated in the same model. sureg is one way around this, which since it makes no assumptions about the coefficients, variances, etc. across the equations is workable--but difficult if you have different N's in the two equations. Any test statistic will have to take into account the est.covariance between the two coefficients, and unless they are in the same model, there is no way to calculate that (and surely not appropriate to assume it away).I ran 2 regressions (using regress), using the same variables, only changing the observations. Now I have to test if the 2 coefficients of the same variable are equal. I only know how to do this when the coefficients are in the same regression, or in multiple equations as in mlogit or sureg. How to test the 2 coefficients in 2 regressions?
