This looks like very strange data indeed - those standard errors are minute. dividing the coefficient by its standard error is going to result in a number of the sort studied by the late Professor Hubert Mungus - a humungus quantity.

Have a look at your data - maybe the explanation lies there.

Hi, Stata users,

I am running median regressions. Sometimes stata reports estimated
coefficients, standard errors and confidence intervals, but the t
statistics turn out to be missing. Could someone please tell me what
this means? Thank you! Below is an example:

qreg chgcomp swf swm swmcdftenure swfcdf* i.ind

Median regression Number of obs = 528
Raw sum of deviations 2.22e+07 (about 6806.4399)
Min sum of deviations 1.74e+07 Pseudo R2 = 0.2164

---------------------------------------------------------------------- --------
chgcomp | Coef. Std. Err. t P>|t| [95% Conf. Interval]
------------- +----------------------------------------------------------------
swf | 44.91122 .0000596 . 0.000 44.91111 44.91134
swm | -1.589599 4.38e-06 . 0.000 -1.589608 -1.589591
```

P    Before printing, think about the environment
