# st: RE: Ratio of coefficients from two regressions and standard error‏.

On the assumption that the two regression coefficient estimates have a Normal distribution, their ratio would have a Cauchy distribution (with no defined variance) if their correlation is zero.  If the correlation is non-zero the exact distribution is complicated, though under certain conditions it tends to a Normal distribution.

You'd be better off instead using Fieller's theorem to obtain confidence limits rather than estimating the standard error

Subject: st: Ratio of coefficients from two regressions and standard error‏.

Hello Statalist,
I am running a fixed effects regression followed by an auxiliary regression to capture the coefficient of time invariant variables. I want to estimate the ratio of two coefficients from these two regressions respectively along with the standard error of the ratio. How can I estimate the ratio and standard error?
Thanks,Meenakshi BeriWayne State University
