Dear Richard and all of you who replied:

I now better understand my error of interpretation (more related to stats than to Stata !!!). The p-value of the coefficient 2.02 is 0.056 (i.e., not significant at the 0.05 level).


This should be an object lesson to people who award a star to a P of 0.049 and not to one of 0.05. Theory building and decision making require a more nuanced approach...
