After running several yearly regressions, I have calculated the mean- coefficient for each variable. I have also calculated something like a mean t-value. My problem: How is it possible to calculate the corresponding p-value in stata? Is it possible to do it in stata at all?
```
sysuse auto,clear
reg price mpg if foreign
scalar t1 = _b[mpg]/_se[mpg]
scalar n1 = e(N)
reg price mpg if !foreign
scalar t2 = _b[mpg]/_se[mpg]
scalar n2 = e(N)
scalar avgt = 0.5 * (t1 + t2)
scalar avgn = 0.5 * (n1 + n2)
scalar avgp = ttail(avgn, abs(avgt))
di _n "Average t(" avgn ") = " avgt " with pval = " avgp
