I Before trying to test for this difference, look at the t-stat on x2. If its pval is small and the correlation between (x1,x2) is nontrivial, the b1 ocefficient in the first regression is inconsistent, so why would you care how much it differs from that of the second regression? In any case there is no need to resort to -suest- to perform this test: sysuse auto,clear expand 2 g secsamp = _n>74 g x1 = mpg g x2 = trunk g x1ss = x1 * secsamp g x2ss = x2 * secsamp // coefficient on x1ss is the difference in x1 when x2 is included reg price secsamp x1 x1ss x2ss, robust sca diff = _b[x1ss] reg price x1 if !secsamp, robust sca x1only = _b[x1] reg price x1 x2 if secsamp, robust sca x2only = _b[x1] sca diff2 = x2only - x1only di "difference from single model " diff " from separate models " diff2 Kit Kit Baum | Boston College Economics & DIW Berlin | http://ideas.repec.org/e/pba1.html An Introduction to Stata Programming | http://www.stata-press.com/books/isp.html An Introduction to Modern Econometrics Using Stata | http://www.stata-press.com/books/imeus.html * * 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/
