I'm probably showing my ignorance here, but what do you want to do a t-test
of, and how would it differ from what the chi-square test tells you? In
the special case of 2 X 2 tables, it is possible to do a z-test using the
-prtest- command; see p. 7 of
http://www.nd.edu/~rwilliam/stats1/Categorical-Stata.pdf. Is that what you
want, or do you have something else in mind? If occupational status is a
continuous variable, you could of course just use the t-test command.
I am just trying to find out the command to conduct a t-test for a simple
crosstab, such as gender by occupational status. I know there is a simple
command for the chi-square test, wihc is just an option for the tabulate
command, but I have not found an option for a t-test.
Thanks for your help!
