but do you agree with: if "reg" gives me the general results: A) Y1=b1 B) Y2=a2*x+b2 on the same data then must be: Y2=mean(x)*x+b2=b1=Y1 ? Is the assumption clear now? thx On Mon, Apr 29, 2013 at 1:21 PM, Nick Cox <njcoxstata@gmail.com> wrote: > I see no evidence here for that extraordinary claim. > > Sorry, I am still lost on what you want. > Nick > njcoxstata@gmail.com > > > On 29 April 2013 12:17, Kasal Roman <kasalroman@gmail.com> wrote: >> of course I don't mean this, I know a2!=mean(x) but IF you put >> a2=mean(x) you get the first method result with the "reg" command :) >> >> On Mon, Apr 29, 2013 at 12:39 PM, Nick Cox <njcoxstata@gmail.com> wrote: >>> >>> What you want is not at all clear.
