```Dear Hugh,
are you looking for something like this (please, see example below):

............................ begin example........................
. input Mod

Mod
1. 1.113924
2. 1.122969
3. 1.057594
4. 1.057594
5. 1.148739
6. .9890202
7. .7163003
8. .7857646
9. .7346777
10. .8520272
11. .8732744
12. .7147149
13. end

. g Index="Mod 1" in 1/6
(6 missing values generated)

. replace Index="Mod 2" in 7/12

. ttest Mod, by(Index) unequal

. permute Mod (r(mu_1)-r(mu_2)), reps(100) strata(Index) : ttest Mod,
by(Index) unequal
(running ttest on estimation sample)
............................ end example........................

HTH and Kind Regards,
Carlo

Oggetto: st: permute test statistic

Can anyone tell me how to code permute properly to test if one modeled
growth rate (mod1) is greater than another (mod2).
Variations on the code below give me a perfect p-value each time.  It
seems that I have to substitute something else for "mean" to come up
with the proper test statistic?

permute  Mod1 mean=r(mean), reps(200) right nodots nodrop nowarn:
summarize Mod2

An example of the data is below.

Row	Mod1		Mod2
1	1.113924	.7163003
2	1.122969	.7857646
3	1.057594	.7346777
4	1.153763	.8520272
5	1.148739	.8732744
6	.9890202	.7147149
