Things all called R-square are not defined in the same way. So, you
should go with whichever model best matches your scientific (rather,
economic) purpose; you may need to consult the manual documentation to
see the formula used.

In addition, when I export the output to excel, it gives adj-R Square which is -0.04. I did not see anything on the stata output called adj-R square so it is confusing? Please can you advice.
