<> Maybe calculate the two models and -suest- them, which allows you to -test- them jointly. HTH Martin -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Beatrice Crozza Sent: Dienstag, 3. August 2010 20:08 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: Re: st: nlcom and delta method Dear Maarten, thank you very much for your help. It works perfectly! The only thing is that when I calculate one non linear combination and I save it with the post option and then I calculate another no linear combination, after a different maximum likelihood, I cannot compare the two values with the test command. Do you have any idea of how to solve this problem, or there is no solution? Because in order to calculate the test by myself I should also need the covariance. Thanks a lot.
