Re: st: New user...trying to use ADO file with SVR |

Thanks for the help! I have tried running the model using both methods suggested in the email below by using the 2 different ways to call the model ~ svrest "ml_try2", mat(e(b)) ~ svrest "ml model lf mlcot (price=mpg weight)/sigma, robust search(quietly) max", mat(e(b)) And I got both methods to run & produce results. Now here's my next dilemma...should the standard errors be the same, regardless of how I call the model? The parameter estimates from these 2 methods are the same. However, I got very different standard errors when using these 2 different ways of calling the model. (8.21e-07 vs. .0484) I also tried using -nl- with SVR, since the model is non-linear in the parameters. (I had been using -ml- per a posting I had found in the FAQs on how to estimate a nonlinear model using -ml-) To try & see if using SVR would work with the -nl- model, I used the 2nd method to call the nonlinear model ~svrest "nl cot logcot", mat(e(b)) and I got results that were the same (both in the parameters & the standard errors) as when I called the -ml- model using the 2nd method [i.e. svrest "ml model lf mlcot (price=mpg weight)/sigma, robust search(quietly) max", mat(e(b))] (I hope my way of explaining things is making sense!) So my questions are: why do the ways of calling the -ml- model produce such different results? and which one is the better way to get the results?
