Re: st: comparing equality of coefficients from two subsamples |

Jay has given you important advice as it pertains to the group residual variances. You are correct that Wooldridge gives an explanation of interaction terms. He also notes that a fully interacted model (as I assume you will be estimating since your initial post seemed to suggest that you expect different coefficients for all covariates for males and females) assumes group error homogeneity (pg 245 of the 4th ed). Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be any discussion, at least in that section, of how to address heteroskedasticity between the groups. I didn't read through the rest of the book. You might want to take a look at this FAQ by Bill Gould: http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/statistics/pooling-data-and-chow-tests/ And these slides from a talk by Bobby Gutierrez: http://www.stata.com/meeting/fnasug08/gutierrez.pdf Only you can see your data and judge whether the constrained variance model is appropriate or not. I wouldn't just dismiss the issue out of hand though. Rebecca On Wed, Feb 20, 2013 at 5:47 AM, Mario Jose <mariojose276@gmail.com> wrote: > Thanks you for comments.
