Dear Statalisters

Thanks to Kit Baum, -utest- ado-file is now available from SSC.

-utest- provides the exact test of the presence of a U shaped (or
inverse U shaped) relationship on an interval. -utest- is used after estimation commands to test for the presence of a U-shaped or
inverse U-shaped relationship between an explanatory variable and the outcome variable on a specific interval.

For details see:

For the companion paper
"With or Without U? - The appropriate test for a U shaped relationship" see:

All the best
