You might want to look into -anova-, with -oneway- as a simpler entry point, if you have several comparisons to conduct..

Zitat von Lili Yan <lyan16@gmail.com>:

Hi Richard, Thank you very much for your prompt response! I did not use -ttest- for several reasons: First, I actually have a weight variale in my data and -ttest- does not allow weights. Second, I need compare means of many variables, so I want to quietly run means calculation and comparison, then generate a table with -mat- commands. In that table, I want to see p-value. So I have to calculate it as Stata does not save it. To me, the -lincom- seems to do what I want, but I want to confirm this with people better in statistics and more familiar with Stata than me. Please let me know if what I did is correct. Thanks a lot!
