<> Sorry about the "submitting" thing, I am the last to discourage use of the dialog boxes. It sounded as if you filled the dialog box in before running the actual regression ("analysis"), that is why I asked... Maybe you want to rephrase your prob in terms of this example: ************* webuse census4, clear regress brate medage medagesq reg2-reg4 test reg2=reg3=reg4 test (reg2=reg3) (reg3=reg4) (reg2=reg4) ************* HTH Martin -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- Von: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Im Auftrag von Ted Fuller Gesendet: Samstag, 31. Januar 2009 22:34 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: Re: st: AW: Question about "testparm" Martin, Thanks for your quick response! I confess I am still a little puzzled. Why is one constraint redundant? My three dummy variables are three categories of a nominal variable, but my nominal variable has four categories. So, knowing the value of two variables does not necessarily indicate the value of the third. If the single tests are accumulated into "one big test", that does not seem to answer my question, which was to find out if the three coefficients vary among themselves. With three coefficients, isn't that three questions (does a=b, does b=c, does a=c)? How can "one big test" answer all three questions? In answer to your question, "Why open the dialog box for -testparm- before "submitting your analysis"?" it is because I am using menus rather than lines of code, and I could not see a way to ask for the what I wanted in the menu for "Statistics - Survey data analysis - Distribution-specific models - Linear regression".
