Marta,
 
I have a question for you - how did you manage to send an email to
Statalist in html format?  According to the FAQ,
 
http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/statalist.html#advice
 
it shouldn't have gone through.
 
I tried posting this to the list in html format as well, and it failed
to get through, which is what I expected - but it makes your success
even more puzzling.

	Mark,
	 
	It's much clearer now. Thanks again.

	I can think of two reasons.  First, sometimes users might
estimate a
	model with the -nocons- option but the model actually does have
a
	constant.  (For example, if the regression is on individuals and
there
	is a gender dummy, the user might exclude a constant and include
both a
	male and a female dummy.)  From a programming point of view, it
was
	easiest just to report both centered and uncentered R-sqs and
let the
	user decide which s/he wants to use.  Second, we don't always
use
	regressions to estimate models; sometimes we do tests based on
	artificial regressions.  There are N*R-sq tests which require
the
	uncentered R-squared.
	
	Cheers,
	Mark
