# Re: st: how do we jointly test coefficients from different regressions?

```Jorge,

When I say 'allow the constant' I just meant that the regression has a
constant in it and is not forced to pass through the origin.  But now that
you mention it... Yes I need to allow the constant to vary over different y
variables.

I will have to do a lot of reading and study to know what this means.

If I trim your code to exclude generation of the dataset, I guess I get
the following.  I have also tried to include the facts that 1. there is
more than just x2, there is also x3 and x4 and that 2. there are y1... y25:

clear
reshape long y, i(year) j(var)
* Regress the stacked y on x, different coefficients by var.
* Allowing the constant to change over different y variables:
reg y c.(x1 x2 x3 x4)##i.var
* Test coefficients on x1. Notice this can be run for any number of
variables.
qui test 1.var#c.x1=0
forv i=2(1)\$nvar {
qui test `i'.var#c.x1=1.var#c.x1, accum
}
test

Did I erase anything that I should not have?
