" so it is not telling you anything for which you need to estimate the
regression to find out."
So the point estimate is equal to ouput of other commands, bout how about
the CI?
*************
sysuse auto, clear
egen shead = std(headroom)
egen slength = std(length)
gen ia2 = shead*slength
egen sia2 = std(ia2)
/*compare */
reg mpg shead slength sia2
mean mpg

Lisa said
but it is important for my paper to show the value of the intercept,
and I get different values if I use either the standardized or the not
standardized dependent variable. If I have the null hypothesis that is
is equal to zero, do I have to use the standardized or not
standardized dependent variable? And coming back to my original
question: Why do I have to standardize the dependent variable?
and in fact if you do standardize both dep and indep vars as suggested
by an earlier post, the constant term is by definition zero. The
regression surface passes through the multivariate point of means, and
that is now (0,0,0,0,0).
When you do run the regression of *un*standardized dep var on
standardized regressors as you would now like to do, the constant term
is by construction the *un*conditional mean of the dep var:
