I am not clear what your question is precisely. But if you want to -regress- on something and its square, you need to -generate- the square as a new variable before you can do it, unless it exists already. I am not clear what you mean by "efficient", but I don't think there is another way to do it. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Meric Osman I have a problem about writing my regression equation. I want to add the variable and its square at the same time. Such as y = a + a^2 + ... Actually, I can do it by generating a new variable which is a*a, but I don't wanna do that because it is not an efficient way. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
