Dear Maarten:

Thanks for the reply. Actually, I have already tried the inequality test by < = or > = sign as well, b but Stata gives error. I am not sure what is wrong?

estimation command such SURE. I tried stata test command and other

given commands for hypothsis testing but I could not. Can you

please let me know how can I test an inequality hypothesis on Stata?

statistical test is supposed to give you: the probability of drawing

the sample you observed, or a more extreme sample, given that your null

hypothesis is true. So we need to create a distribution of samples

given that he null hypothesis is true. In order to create such a

distribution the null hypothesis must contain an equal sign (either

equal in case of a two sided test, or less than or equal to or more

than or equal to in case of a one sided test).

Hope this helps,

Maarten
