Hi statalist,

When I use the OLS, I would like to know whether the included covariates are
jointly significant, that is if they should be included in the model. I want
to
test a F statistic for the overall significance of a regression? How do I do
this? Or is this results already computed in the outcome of the regression
output. Is the F (7, 2151) = 176 and Prob > F = 0.0000 the F test?

Linear regression                                      Number of obs =
2159
F(  7,  2151) =
176.90
Prob > F      =
0.0000
R-squared     =
0.4400
Root MSE      =
1.159
