# st: Question about "testparm"

 From Ted Fuller <[email protected]> To [email protected] Subject st: Question about "testparm" Date Sat, 31 Jan 2009 15:46:11 -0500

```This is probably a pretty basic question.
I am using svyregress.
```
Before submitting my analysis, I opened the dialog box for "testparm" and specified three variables and indicated that I wanted to test whether the coefficients for these three variables were equal.
```The output said:
(1) - var1 + var2 =0
(2) - var1 + var3 =0
F(2, 338) = 13.10
Prob > F = 0.0000

I thought I was going to get three tests:
(1) to see if the coefficient for var1 = coefficient for var2;
(2) to see if the coefficient for var1 = coefficient for var3;
(3) to see if the coefficient for var2 = coefficient for var3.

But I only got one test.
How can I get the three tests that I mentioned?
Thanks!
