No, -regress- does use OLS, but those coefficients are also the MLEs, except for the rmse but that is a straightforward transformation. So you can use the results from an OLS fit to get the MLE and the corresponding likelihood, which is what -regress- does in order to give you a little bit of extra information at no cost. -- Maarten On Thu, Feb 21, 2013 at 3:47 PM, Hsien-Yuan Hsu <hsuhy0914@gmail.com> wrote: > Dear Dr. Cox, > > Thanks for your prompt reply. > When I use commend "regress", I assume OLS regression is conducted. > Why does STATA report "e(ll) log likelihood under additional > assumption of i.i.d. normal errors."?
