st: Comparing means of two variables using -suest- |

Hello, IŽd like to compare two means of two different groups (dummy variables), where each one is affected by a grouping variable. I was looking in the Stata FAQS and found that this was posible with the - suest - command, but when I use it, it doesnŽt work and I donŽt know whatŽs wrong. IŽappreciate if you could give me some advice. My dummy variables are like this: act_m = (participating == 1 & male == 1) ; 0 otherwise act_f = (participating == 1 & female == 1) ; 0 otherwise pension = 1 if recieves a pension; 0 otherwise And I need to compare the 'act_m' mean when 'pension' == 1 with the mean of 'act_f' when 'pension' == 1. What I was doing was (and didnŽt work): svyset folio [pw = factor] mean act_m if (hm3_hym == 1 & menor15h == 1) [fw = factorex], over(pension) est store act_m1 mean act_f if (hm3_hym == 1 & menor15h == 1) [fw = factorex], over(pension) est sto act_f1 suest act_m1 act_f1,svy test [act_m1]pensionh [act_h1]pensionh The error that Stata brings is: suest act_m1 act_h1,svy unable to generate scores for model act_m1 suest requires that predict allow the score option r(322); Well, IŽd appreciate very much your help! :) Leonor Thank you so much Austin!..... This has been very helpful...
