Is this "test" command after > probit a correct command for a linear hypothese test for > probit? -test- is fine after -probit-, it will give you the Wald test. An alternative is the likelihood ratio test, which has some nice characteristics, but cannot be used when you specified the -robust-, -cluster()- options or used pweights. Below is an example showing how to do both. *------------ begin example --------------- sysuse auto, clear probit foreign rep78 price mpg test (rep78 = 0) (price = 0) est store a probit foreign mpg if !missing(rep78,price) est store b lrtest a b *----------- end example ------------------- ( For more on how to use examples I sent to statalist see: http://www.maartenbuis.nl/stata/exampleFAQ.html ) Hope this helps, Maarten -------------------------- Maarten L.
