Dear Amal

Best regards, Michael N. Mitchell Data Management Using Stata - http://www.stata.com/bookstore/dmus.html A Visual Guide to Stata Graphics - http://www.stata.com/bookstore/vgsg.html Stata tidbit of the week - http://www.MichaelNormanMitchell.com On 2010-09-07 9.29 AM, Amal Khanolkar wrote:

Dear Michael, Thank you for your reply. If I understand right, in the example that you sent me, read and write are corelated but their effects are not estimated as such. My problem is, say hypothetically, that we had an arrow with age pointing to math and another similar 'age-arrow' pointing to science. I know that age has an effect on both math and science. Age is not in the pathway under study but has to be adjusted for. Does one then just include another (math age)& (science age) command to signify these relationships in the pathreg command (thereby adjusting for age aswell)?? Thanks, /Amal.

In that example, read is adjusted for write, and write is adjusted for read. I hope that helps, Michael N.
