Hey Stata users,

I am having a problem using the Hausman test of independence of irrelevant alternatives (IIA) following the estimation of a multinomial logistic regression model.  I have a three category nominal dependent variable called DV (0 = no college, 1 = immediate enrollment in college, and 2 = on-time enrollment in college).

I first estimate the model:
mlogit DV x1 x2 x3 x4

STATA estimates the model with no problem.  I then use the commands to obtain the Hausman test:

mlogtest, hausman base 

STATA tells me
**** Hausman tests of IIA assumption

Ho: Odds(Outcome-J vs Outcome-K) are independent of other alternatives.

no coefficients in common; specify -equations(matchlist)- for the problem of different equation names. r(498);

Does anyone know if I am doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance for your help,
