Hi maarten, Thanks very much.. that is very helpful. One of the variables is highly non normal but log transformation makes it reasonably close to normal. So I suppose I could do that. In the example you have created three groups based on rep78. A mvreg is run with mpg and trunk as the depvars with dummies for the three groups of rep78. The output shows that w.r.t mpg group 4 is more similar to group 3. w.r.t truck again group 4 is more similar to group 3. The parmest gives me an overall F. But how I do I interpret that w.r.t to mpg and trunk combines gp 4 is more similar to go 3.

The example below will work when x and y are, conditional on your grouping variable, approximately normally distributed. *---------- begin example ---------- sysuse auto, clear recode rep78 1/2=3 xi: mvreg mpg trunk = i.rep78 testparm _I* *----------- end example ----------- Hope this helps, Maarten ----------------------------------------- Maarten L.
