I understand what you mean now, Austin. But it is literally 'doesn't
run' , hours spent in exactly the same point. No error messages,
nothing. I concluded (perhaps wrongly) that the system could have had
entered in some kind of endless loop.
I have acquired the 64 bits version quite recently, but haven't yet
installed it. In the meantime, I wish I could do the test.
If you have an idea about how to perform the test, no matter how less
straightforward it can be (I'm ready to work on that) , I would be
really grateful.

I would not claim that the use of dummy variables is really the only
way to perform the test you want in Stata; but it's the most
straightforward way most of the time. My point was only that a phrase
like "the regression doesn't run" is unlikely to elicit helpful
responses, unless you relate the specific error messages or
constraints you are hitting. I mentioned two ways to relax a
constraint (more memory; Stata MP) but it is not clear to me that
either would help, in the absence of more info about why "the
regression doesn't run." However, I will note that you might need a
64-bit version of Stata to use more memory.

Thanks, Austin.
I am currently using Stata 9.2 SE for Linux on a 32 bits processor and
have 2.5 gb of ram memory available. My model doesn't run in this
particular machine. It might be the case that if I use another
architecture the model will run.
So, Austin - do you mean that the use of dummy variables is really the
only way to perform the test I want in Stata?

What do you mean when you say
"I suppose
because the number of variables and observations is too big, the
regression doesn't run."
precisely?
Do you mean you need more memory or a newer version of Stata that
supports multiple CPUs, or do you mean the regression is infeasible on
any machine?

Good afternoon,
After using -streg- with shared frailty, I am trying to test the
equality of regression coefficients that are generated from the same
specification (same dependent variable, same vector of regressors),
estimated on two different samples. But am not able to.
I tried to implement StataCorp's FAQ:
http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/stat/testing.html, but I suppose
because the number of variables and observations is too big, the
regression doesn't run.
