Hi Martin hi everybody

you are right, parmest simplifies it greatly, but is there another way to
put the p-values directly into my data set?
I mean, using something like gen t=_b[.]/_se[.] makes stata write the
t-statistics in the *same* dataset where the other variables already are.
The thing is I run many regressions. My dataset consists of data from 1950
to 1995. I want to run regression  for 5-year-time-windows only, that is,
the first time window is 1950-1955 etc.
To put all the statistics  from the regression table into my dataset
simplifies my task because I then can reduce my sample to those time windows
where all the regression coefficient are at least significant at the 5%
level (for example by using: bys window: keep if p_value=<0.05).

That is the reason why I want to calculate the t-values and, in the next
step, the p-values separately.

Is there a may to calculate p-values after having calculated t-values?

Try to give an example of how it looks like in my dataset
year   var1 var2 ...  coefficient         t_val         p_val

1950                          2.98             4.27   -->  ????
1950                          2.98             4.27   ---> ????
...etc.
