Hello,

I have written a new routine that can be executed after most of the more common estimation commands.  This routine uses the BIC statistic to see if the model is as probable without a given variable.  It is a good check for when your sample size is too large or small (the t statistic is sometimes too sensitive to N).  It is located at:

www.ucalgary.ca/~pemillar/stata.htm

(the page has both the ado and hlp files).

Please let me know if you have any problems running it, or if you have requests for improvements.
