No. A counter-example is -binomial()-. But the converse appears to be almost true. Whenever you want to specify an integer df, the argument in question is called n, n1, or n2. David Airey Is n in the probability functions always df? Like in ttail(n,t)? Several of the functions are explicit with this, several are not. I've always assumed it was df. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
