Dear Statalisters,

I am analysing a linear model of labour market earnings using OLS, which can be written as:

y = a0 + B1X1+B2X2+...+BnXn+e

The same equation was estimated for disaggregated sub-groups of the data, say, for males and females. 

I would like to comnpute the Chow test statistic to see if the beta estimates for females differ from those of males, for all the variables used in the analysis. 

I have read the FAQ on doing that:

which suggests the use of interaction terms to compute the Chow test statistic. As I have over 70 variables in the model, this is quite a tedious process. Can anyone please suggest an easier way to do this?
