Re: st: How -ovtest- works?
Many thanks to Richard and Andreas.
I understand how -ovtest- is working. I should have read the manual
But I have still one question.
Why does Stata normalize the y-hat variable before powers are taken?
(Reference N-R p.381)
And why does it change the outcome, that is, the F statistic?
I don't think a normalization of regressors change F statistic.
Any comment would be helpful.
