Re: st: Calculating the e^b using listcoef |

Richard and all, Thanks for the feedback. My question is not so much, "How do I get Stata to produce an e^b?" but more like "What formula does Stata use to produce the e^b?" Here is the scenario that produced the question: In checking the e^b with by hand calculations (FYI: my hand calculation are based on a text book and while some e^bs were very close to being the same, some were not), I found that the results were different when I calculated by hand and with Stata. So the question is, what formula does Stata use? Thanks :) M. On 9/1/05 4:35 PM, "Richard Williams" <Richard.A.Williams.5@ND.edu> wrote: > At 03:35 PM 9/1/2005, Mosi A.
