Herve STOLOWY: I would use -suest- for your problem. -sureg- gives you more or less the same answer as two separate OLS regressions when both regressions have the same RHS variables, but it does allow you to test across equations. If that is all you want, and you think the OLS assumptions are justified, it may be preferable, I suppose. -suest- gives you the same point estimates as the separate regressions, even when RHS variables differ across equations, but will give you slightly different variance estimates--it also estimates additional covariance terms--and it has more flexibility (there is no vce or cluster option on -sureg- for example). Try e.g. sysuse auto, clear qui sureg (mpg weight=foreign length), dfk mat sureg=e(V) est sto sureg qui reg mpg foreign length est sto r1 qui reg weight foreign length est sto r2 qui suest r1 r2 mat suest=e(V) est sto suest esttab sureg r1 r2, unstack esttab sureg suest, eq(1:1, 2:3) mat li sureg mat li suest On Mon, Apr 27, 2009 at 10:29 AM, Martin Weiss <martin.weiss1@gmx.de> wrote: > Maybe this post http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2007-08/msg00238.html > and answers help answer your question... > -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- > Von: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Im Auftrag von Herve STOLOWY > Gesendet: Montag, 27.
