Thanks Nick, yes exactly, my question is why the ladder function fails to provide any chi-square values here. I'll attach the Stata output here: . ladder disp_2000 Transformation formula chi2(2) P(chi2) ------------------------------------------------------------------ cubic dis~2000^3 . . square dis~2000^2 . . identity dis~2000 . . square root sqrt(dis~2000) . 0.000 log log(dis~2000) . 0.000 1/(square root) 1/sqrt(dis~2000) . 0.000 inverse 1/dis~2000 . 0.000 1/square 1/(dis~2000^2) . 0.000 1/cubic 1/(dis~2000^3) . 0.000 . sum disp_2000, detail Number displaced 2000 (if data unavailable go up to 2003 ------------------------------------------------------------- Percentiles Smallest 1% 1 1 5% 2 1 10% 3 1 Obs 1010 25% 6 1 Sum of Wgt. 1010 50% 15.5 Mean 281.5297 Largest Std.
