Dear Ozgur, I do not understand your concern. If the -ovtest- does not reject the null hypothesis of no omitted variables, your regression model has no misspecification problems (ie, all the relevant explanatory variables are included in the RHS). Kindest Regards, Carlo -----Messaggio originale----- Da: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Per conto di Ozgur Ozdemir Inviato: giovedì 22 settembre 2011 13.57 A: Stata Oggetto: RE: st: qladder Thanks Nic, you are right, in my case, residuals I think should be normally distributed and i am happy with it but when I run the ovtest, it does not reject the null hypothesis, that means, something is wrong with the transformations or interactions within the model, not sure if i really need to pass the ovtest. I did not see lots of papers reported ovtest results anyway. kind regards Ozgur ---------------------------------------- > Date: Thu, 22 Sep 2011 12:52:31 +0100 > Subject: Re: st: qladder > From: njcoxstata@gmail.com > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > > I don't think I can suggest a complete list for you.
