Dear Statalisters,


Try this in Stata:

**********
webuse fuel, clear
qui{
*two-sample mean comparison
noi ttest mpg1==mpg2
local pl1=r(p_l) 
local pu1=r(p_u)
local p1=r(p)

*two-group mean comparison
stack mpg1 mpg2, into(mpg)  clear
rename _s group
noi ttest mpg, by(group)
local pl2=r(p_l) 
local pu2=r(p_u)
local p2=r(p)

*Results
noi di  _newline
noi di in red "Results:" _newline
noi di in red "Test against H1: <" _column(23)  round(`pl1', .001) " versus
" round(`pl2', .001) _newline 
noi di in red "Test against H1: >" _column(23)  round(`pu1', .001) " versus
" round(`pu2', .001) _newline
noi di in red "Test against H1: !=" _column(23) round(`p1', .001) " versus "
round(`p2', .001) _newline
}
**********

Then let me know how I can easily explain the difference between a
"two-sample mean" and a "two-group mean" comparison test.

Warm regards,
Martin Weiss
