Hi, Natalia. The Chow test applies to ordinary linear regression models. It is worth noting that Greg Chow's paper appeared in 1960, when computing resources were much more limited than they are today (think electromechanical desk calculators). I see no need to use it now. I would set up the models with the appropriate interactions and use a likelihood-ratio test. That approach is more flexible. And, importantly, it generalizes to other types of regression models that involve a likelihood, such as your multinomial logit model. As I read your message, it is not quite true that "interactions would not help." They would be tedious, but you should be able to reduce the effort by using factor variables in Stata. It would make sense to focus first on agesq, since its presence in the model requires that age also be included.
