I know testing the difference between coefficients of variables is straightforward: reg y x1 x2 x3 test x1 = x2 = x3 Is the test as straightforward for examining coefficients in models with interactions variables? reg y x1 x2 x3 x1*x2 x1*x3 where: x2 and x3 are dummy variables that identify groups the base group is when x2=0 and x3=0, group 2 is when x2=1 and x3=0, group 3 is when x2=0 and x3=1 I am interpreting the effect of the base group as x1's coefficient. The effect of group 2 is the sum of coefficients of the x1 and x1*x2 variables. Lastly, the effect of group 3 is the sum of coefficients of the x1 and x1*x3 variables. Now, I want to examine whether the effects of the three groups are different. Is the test: test x1 = x1*x2 = x1*x3 * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
