I figured out why the output from the regression anatomy (reganat)
command is different than what is shown in the Stata Journal article
when using the semip option in Stata 10.1. The reganat command uses
the pcorr command to display the table of partial and semipartial
correlations. In Stata 10.1, the pcorr command only shows the partial
correlations and not the semipartial correlations and it’s also why
the model´s variance decomposition table comes up blank. It looks like
the pcorr command was updated in Stata 11 to show the semipartial
correlations.
