st: Re: changing significance levels
test gives you a p-value, so there is no significance level to adjust, you
can just compare the p-value to whatever cutoff you like.

Subject: test: changing significance levels
I apologize for such a simple question. I am using the "test" command to
test for equality of coefficients under an F-test, having just performed a
regression. Is there any way of either:
a) changing the command to test that one coefficient is greater than the
other (i.e. specifiy a one-sided alternative hypothesis)
b) specifying a different signficance level than 5%. Unlike for other
commands, an option ", sig" does not seem to be available for "test".
I've tried "help test" but it hasn't listed anything that can help.
