Hi there,

I need calculate the mean of two groups (say, native cars and foreign
cars) and do a t-test. However, I am not very sure if -lincom- is the
correct command after -mean-. Could anyone please let me know if the
following commands are right?

mean mpg, over(foreign)
lincom [`var']0-[`var']1
di 2*ttail(r(df), abs(r(estimate)/r(se)))

Thanks in advance!

Best,
Lili
