RE: st: question on chow test
I've got a follow-up on this one:
My model looks like this:
regress y x1 g2 g3 g4 g2x1 g3x1 g4x1 g2x2 g3x2 g4x2 x3 x4
I have more than one group and I have more than one variable that differ
and some control variables that should not vary across groups.
I know that with
testparm g2 g3 g4 g2x1 g3x1 g4x1 g2x2 g3x2 g4x2
I can test if the variables all together do vary across the groups.
But how can I test if, for example, the subgroup of x1 is differing
across groups. Is
testparm g2x1 g3x1 g4x1
Is this the correct way to do the test?
Secondly, can I use the differences between
g2x1 <-> g3x1 <-> g4x1
to describe the "strength" of the differences (amount of difference, in
the same meaning as effect strength compared to statistical
