Dear All, 
I have two models aiming to estimate effect of age on wage. In the first model age is recorded in 5 categories. In the second model age is recorded in 10 categories.
The question is how to compare goodness of fit of two models? 

In principle I would apply F-test, but I am not sure whether "test" procedure in Stata allows me to do it? Should I use ANOVA instead?

Thank you for your replies.
