# RE: st: Comparing 2 models with -test- command under SVY

 From "Shellenberg, Kristen" To "statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu" Subject RE: st: Comparing 2 models with -test- command under SVY Date Tue, 25 Aug 2009 16:47:19 -0400

Thank you, Richard.

The next question may seem very dumb so please forgive me in advance... if I run my model with the interaction term included and the Adjusted Wald Test is not significant then it means that the interaction term isn't adding anything to the model and doesn't need to be included, correct?  I want to make sure that I am interpreting the results correctly.

Here are my results:

i.raceth          _Iraceth_1-4        (naturally coded; _Iraceth_1 omitted)

Kristen, all the dummies and interactions created by -xi3- get tacked
on as variables at the end of the file.  So, it should just be a
matter of typing

test

and (before hitting return) selecting the interaction terms that were
created (which will start with _ and have an X in their names).  A
simple example:

webuse nhanes2f
xi3: svy: reg weight i.female*i.race
test  _Ife1Xra2 _Ife1Xra3
