Subject: st: Testing for rho differences after mvprobit

Dear Statalisters
I have estimated a model through the "mvprobit" command of Capellari and Jenkins. I would like to test whether the differences in the rhos are statistically significant. For example, I would like to know whether rho21 is different from rho31 or whether rho21>rho42. Is there any way of doing this with Stata?
Thank you very much.
Jaime Gómez.
================

-mvprobit- is available on SSC (this is a later version than the 2003 Stata Journal version). [Remember the Statalist FAQ reminding you to say where modules are available from.]

You can straightforwardly test equality of correlations using -test- but referring to the ("atrho") transformed versions of the correlations rather than the correlations themselves. Look in e(V) and e(b) using -matrix list- for the names used by the program. Inequality constraints cannot currently be tested directly, as far as I know.

If you have 4 outcome variables, then you might find the Cappellari/Jenkins material in Stata Journal 6(2) 2006 (downloadable from SJ website) of interest -- using code of the kind illustrated there together with the plugin will estimate your model faster. That's relevant if you're having to fit it multiple times.  See also -cmp- on SSC by David Roodman.
