Subject  Re: st: storing coefficients generated by nlcom

Giulio:
In most cases I would not append it to the e(b) matrix since than the e(b) and e(V) (Variance
Covariance matrix) no longer match. If it is a matter of storing coefficients in one matrix you
could make a new matrix (call it b) and append the e(b) vector with the r(b) vector like in the
example below. You could also have a look at Roger Newson's parmest which might help store the
estimates in a seperate dataset. This can be helpful if you want to graph them. This is the all
the advice I can give you, since you don't tell us what you want to do with the estimates.
HTH,
Maarten
*begin example
sysuse auto, clear
logit foreign mpg
nlcom or: exp(_b[mpg])
matrix b = e(b),r(b)
matrix list b
*end example

After estimation, I generated a nonlinear combination of a coefficient (and
standard error) with command nlcom. This coefficient is stored into matrix
s(b). Is there a way to add this new coefficient to the e(b) matrix of
original coeffients? Command nlcom allows option post, which replaces the
e(b) matrix instead of updating it.
Thanks
