The pathreg command is useful and an easy way to keep the sample size
consistent for each prediction. Unfortunately, I don't think it reports the
R-square for each equation and that is usually important information.
-pathreg- does give the R-square for each equation along with residual
error.  A small advantage for -pathreg- it that it reports
standardized coefficients (path coefficients) along with the regular
OLS coefficients.  That said, I have to agree with Richard Williams
that -reg3- is a much more robust program.  -pathreg- was written for
a multiple regression course to allow for the easy demonstration of
path analysis models in a classroom setting.
