<> This is a peculiarity of -suest- in connection with -regress-, described in [R], p. 1803. But this constant is not the one that you are worried about. As you can see from the -test- output in the last row, it is not part of its output, even if you add option "constant" to -test-... ************* sysuse auto, clear reg price weight length /* */ trunk turn, nocon est store one reg weight length /* */ headroom turn, nocon est store two suest one two te [one_mean =two_mean ], common te [one_mean =two_mean ], common constant ************* HTH Martin -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- Von: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Im Auftrag von Flora Hofmann Gesendet: Donnerstag, 1. Oktober 2009 14:44 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: Re: st: AW: constant in the suest command I am sorry if my question was too confused to answer. The main reason for estimating the equations as a system is that I want to test cross equation restrictions. The problem is that I want to estimate the equations without a constant. Here is what I did: qui reg lny1 b1x1 b2x2 b3x3 year_dummies country_dummies, noc est sto y1 qui reg lny2 b4x4 b5x5 b6x6 year_dummies country_dummies, noc est sto y2 qui reg lny3 b7x7 b8x8 b9x9 year_dummies country_dummies, noc est sto y3 suest y1 y2 y3 The output however always reports a constant for each of the three equations as well. For example under the heading 'y1_mean' it reports the coefficients and s.e. for all included variables and then under the heading 'y1_lnvar'a constant is reported. It is this constant that is puzzeling. I am probably just missing some basic feature of -suest-. However, I couldn't find any explanation for the reason and interpretation of this constant.
