Hi everyone.

A quick question:

I run some simulations and after regression analysis on 5,000 simulated
datasets,I calculate the mean slope b and mean standard error of b's.We know
that the mean SE(b)=standard deviation(b1,...,b5000).However,when instead of
reporting the mean SE,I calculate the SD of b's,I find different results.Is it
possible that this has to do with how STATA calculates the standard errors??

Thanks in advance!
