```Dear Richard and all of you who replied:

I now better understand my error of interpretation (more related to stats than to Stata !!!). The p-value of the coefficient 2.02 is 0.056 (i.e., not significant at the 0.05 level).

The number of df is: 3 (model) + 22 (residual) = 25 (total).

Do you know where I could find the critical value corresponding to each df, and particularly this one?

Best regards

Herv�

What are the sample size and degrees of freedom?  For example, if d.f. =
30, the critical value for T is 2.042, not 1.96.  For d.f. = 40, the
critical value is 2.021.  Also, does the regular Stata output from
regression indicate that the coefficient is significant?
