st: RE: t-test
As far as I can understand this, your problem
sounds like an analysis of variance problem.
It is possible to cycle through t tests for
all distinct pairs of categories, in Stata as in other
software, but it seems
to be generally considered that looking at the problem as
a whole is preferable on a variety of statistical
and scientific grounds.
In any case, doing t-tests separately doesn't make
them independent of each other.
