1.96 would be the threshold for a normal distribution.
The corresponding number for t distribution depends on the degrees of freedom (df). For many dfs it will approach 1.96

Dear Statalist members:

I noticed a strange thing concerning the t values of the regression coefficients.

A star should be displayed if the coefficient is significant at the 0.05 level. In my mind, the threshold t value for this level was 1.96. I have a coefficient of 2.02 in a regression and no star is displayed. Am I wrong somewhere? Is there a bug?

Best regards
