Thanks! This helped me a lot! Zitat von Kit Baum <kitbaum@mac.com>:

<> Does it mean, that if I have two negative coefficients and want to test whether the one (which has the more negative point estimate) is significantly more negative then the other, I can divide the p-value by two and reject (or resepctively not reject) the null-hypothesis? Yes. If the null is that the coefficients are equal (or, in one-tailed terms, h0: \beta_1 >= \beta_2) then what you need to reject on a one-tailed basis is that \beta_1 << \beta_2 in terms of the point estimates. The p-val for that test is one-half the two-sided p-val reported for a test of equality of the coefficients.
