Re: st: Constraint, Poisson, & pseudo R^2
Dave - thanks for your reply. I'm not using Scott's add on for the model
estimation. Interestingly, Stata version 7 provides the pseudo-R^2 value when
using the constraint, but version 8 does not. This makes me think Stata
intentionally eliminated it from the output in the latest incarnation. Hopefully
someone will know the reason why. Maybe it is not appropriate to report the
R^2 value under these conditions?

That's almost certainly because Long and Freeze use their add on program
that calculates psuedo R squares. I can't remember the name of the add on
program, but it is listed repeatedly in the Long and Freeze book.
