In order to test for equality of coefficients in two
regressions, I used -suest- followed by -test-. I had
Prob > Chi2 = 0.0000, which I reckoned be the p-value.
However, when I give a command for the p-value to be
displayed, the result suggests the p-value is missing:
display r(p)
.

I have two questions:
Is the p-value for the test given by Prob > Chi2?

Why is it that although I had Prob > Chi2 = 0.0000,
display r(p) does not report the value 0.0000?

Thanks.

Louis
