<> I do think that such a -relatively- easy formula could be calculated in the old -matrix- commands (see -help matrix-). All it takes would be transposing the (Y-XBhat) matrix, subtraction and multiplication. The -help matrix- for Stata 10 contains an example for the OLS estimator calculation, that reads as *** matrix beta = invsym(X'*X)*X'*y *** so that is pretty much what you need...

Y would be a (n x 1) vector...hmm, I only have Stata 8, any idea how y'd do such a calc without mata?
