Dear Statalist,

I have a very rudimentary understanding of what I am trying to do, so I
hope you will bear with me.

I need to do one-sided testing in a multinomial setting with exact (i.e.,
non-asymptotic) inference comparing mean outcomes for randomized treatment
(n=58) and control (n=65) groups.  Thus I want to test a vector null of
mu_t > mu_c against the alternative mu_t=mu_c.

I have no idea what this procedure would be called, and if anyone can
recommend a source and/or a module in Stata to do this, I would be most
grateful.

My data looks like this.

n	treatment	outcome1	...	outcomek
1	1		1		...	1
.	0		2		...	2
.	.		.		...	.
.	.		.		...	.
.	.		.		...	.
123	1		100		...	1
