st: Barber style Johnson ttest of regression constant |

Dear Statalisters, I need to calculate a skewness adjusted t statistic of a "xtreg,fe" regression constant. The regression has multiple (3) independent variables. This is necessary to test the significance of abnormal returns in a long-term event study. My question is similar to the following Statalist question: http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2003-05/msg00243.html The adjusted t-statistic is given in "Barber et al. 1999" The statistic can be found on page 16 in the following paper: http://www.people.hbs.edu/jlerner/OldIPO.pdf The Stata code for a simple variable x with i observations would be: ***************************************************************** **** One Sample johnson t-test as in Barber et al. 1999 **** summarize Xi gen mean = r(mean) gen stddev = r(Var)^0.5 gen numobs = r(N) gen S = (mean/stddev) gen cubes = (Xi-mean)^3 egen sumcubes = sum(cubes) gen jskew =sumcubes/(numobs*(stddev^3)) * johnson t-test as in Barber et al. 1999 * gen jttest = ((numobs^0.5) *(S+1/3*jskew*S^2+(1/(6*numobs))*jskew)) ******************************************************************** Does anybody have an idea how to implement this for a "xtreg, fe" regression constant. (I do not want to use the program "johnson" - does not work for this problem I believe) In particular: how do I calculate the cubes variable: "gen cubes = (Xi-mean)^3" if mean is the regression constant and the regression includes multiple (3) independent variables. Thank you very much for having a look at this. I believe an answer would be very helpful for many newbie economists trying to implement a long-term event study.
