Hi,

I am doing some joint tests on coefficients of highly correlated variables (like x x^2 x^3 x^4 etc.) with testparm. The output of testparm tells me that some constraints are dropped. I understand (right?) this is done to get a nonsingular matrix. Yet, what I would like to know is what the pattern or structure is with which Stata decides which constraints to drop?

Any insights would be appreciated.
Thanks,

Iwan Barankay
