This kind of thing is not my territory at all, but I wondering if fitting models in which x1+x2+x3 were summed to be a single predictor would make this easier. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Francesco Trivieri thank you very much for your help. I am trying to assess whether a sum of three coefficients from a given model (fixed effexts model, as suggested by xtoverid) is the same in two different two-samples. I have just tried the command -suest- suggestd by John, using - reg- instead of xtreg and allowing for fixed effects with dummies (id). Please find below the lines I wrote xi: reg y x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 i.time i.id if D==0 estimates store zero xi: reg y x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 i.time i.id if D==1 estimates store one suest zero one test [zero_mean]x1+[zero_mean]x2+[zero_mean]x3=[one_mean]x1+[one_mean]x2+[one _mean]x3 From: "Martin Weiss" <martin.weiss1@gmx.de> > "There is a quick way to do this using -suest-" > > Can you give an example? -suest- is not available after -xt- commands...
