While we're chuckling at what appears to be poor practice elsewhere, let's remember that all statistical programs basically assume at some level that users take responsibility for what they do. For example, suppose your -tsset- your data. So, Stata has been told that you have time series data. Now you do a t-test on some data using -ttest-. Does Stata come up with a warning that this test assuming independence might not make sense?

Does it issue a message warning the user that the test might or might not make sense according to the data and sort order? * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
