Pardon my bluntness ...

For reference and the convenience of you and other Statalisters, here is my previous response:

Regarding your question, if you read my previous response you will see I referred to the sigmamore and sigmaless OPTIONS.  Not commands.  See the help file for the -hausman- command.

Regarding your posting, you should read the Stata FAQ:

Deleting the previous discussion from what you sent to Statalist, as you did, makes it much harder for anyone to follow what is going on, let alone try to offer help.

You should read postings more closely.  The difference between an option and command is something you should have been able to work out yourself.

And in the same vein, my previous posting said "please reply to the list if you have a follow up question to this post, not to me personally".  Why you continue to send things directly to my personal email is a mystery to me.  It is also more than a little annoying.

But please do pardon my bluntness.
