# st: Wald chi-square and ml with multiple equations

 From "E. Paul Wileyto" To statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject st: Wald chi-square and ml with multiple equations Date Wed, 12 Nov 2008 10:33:17 -0500

When I am using ml with a multiple equation model, for instance <zinb>, the Wald chi-square seems only to reflect the first equation. Is this correct? Is there any way to specify that the Wald chi-square should refer to equations 1 and 2?
```
Example, from our smoking data..

. zinb cignums drug sex wk_*, inflate(drug sex wk_*) vce(cluster subject)

```
Zero-inflated negative binomial regression Number of obs = 61187 Nonzero obs = 25293 Zero obs = 35894
```
```
Inflation model = logit Wald chi2(9) = 14.20 Log pseudolikelihood = -140745.3 Prob > chi2 = 0.1152
```
