Subject   st: extracting the variable name from e(wtype) container after regrress
Date   Thu, 10 Nov 2005 19:29:36 +0100

Dear Statslisters,

I have written a small program to calculate the goodness-of-fit-chi2-test after estimating a WLS -regression modell for tabulated data (GSK-approach). How can I extract the varname from the e(wexp) container to use it in my program? Typing "dis e(wexp)" I get only the expression "=var name of weighting variable" but not the varnme itself. I need this to formulate my program gofchi2 mor generally.

Thank you for your help
