Thanks as always to Kit Baum, a new version of the -haif- package is now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this, or -adoupdate- if you already have an old version of -haif-.

The -haif- package is described as below on my website. The new version has the same programs as before, but the on-line help now contains hypertext to access my 2009 UK Stata User Meeting presentation on -haif-.

Best wishes

      haif: Homoskedastic adjustment inflation factors for model selection

      haif calculates homoskedastic adjustment inflation factors (HAIFs)
      for core variables in the corevarlist, caused by adjustment by the
      additional variables specified by addvars().  HAIFs are calculated
      for the variances and standard errors of estimated linear regression
      parameters corresponding to the core variables.  For each variance
      (or standard error), the HAIF is defined as the ratio between that
      variance (or standard error) of that parameter, in a model containing
      both the core variables and the additional variables, to the
      corresponding variance (or standard error) of the same parameter, in
      a model containing only the core variables, calculated assuming that
      the second model is true, and also assuming that the outcome variable
      is homoskedastic (meaning that it has equal variances in all
      subpopulations defined by the predictor variables).  haifcomp
      calculates the ratios between the HAIFs for the same core variables
      caused by adjustment for two alternative lists of additional
      variables, namely a numerator list and a denominator list.  haif and
      haifcomp are intended for use in model selection, allowing the user
      to choose a model based on the joint distribution of the exposures
      and confounders, before estimating the parameters of the model from
      the data on the outcome variable.
