Justina, I was puzzled by this: "Please be so kind to stop being offensive." for a while till I re-read my email, and realised that the sentence: "[...], it is sometimes a good exercise to check these yourself" might be taken to mean that I was implying that you had not read the manual. That was not what I meant at all. I meant that you could reconfirm Stata command calculations (and what it says in the manual) by reconstructing them differently, as I do above. However, since not wanting to give offense does not sometimes mean that offense is not taken, I offer you my sincere apologies. I am glad that you arrived at a solution for your Stata problem.
