Following Kit's suggestion I redefined the constraint L.wpi+L2.wpi+L3.wpi=1 as b(L3) = 1-b(L)-b(L2), and regressed (wpi - L.wpi) on (L.wpi-L3.wpi), (L2.wpi-L3.wpi) and other variables. This does not produce a correct R^2, as Richard suspected. It is much lower because of variables transformations, I think. Is there a way to to calculate a correct R^2 after using -reg- for this problem?

However, does this produce a correct R^2, which is what Vidya was seeking in the first place? I was thinking of situations where all the manipulations could be done on the RHS, but here the LHS has to be changed. ------------------------------------------- Richard Williams, Notre Dame Dept of Sociology OFFICE: (574)631-6668, (574)631-6463 FAX: (574)288-4373 HOME: (574)289-5227 EMAIL: Richard.A.Williams.5@ND.Edu WWW (personal): http://www.nd.edu/~rwilliam WWW (department): http://www.nd.edu/~soc * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
