# st: Number of constraints bellow number of variables in svy:regress

 From Ángel Rodríguez Laso To statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject st: Number of constraints bellow number of variables in svy:regress Date Wed, 9 May 2012 18:03:39 +0200

```Dear statalisters,

I want to ask you about a result that is puzzling me. I'm working with
Stata 9.2.

I've conducted a regression analysis in a svy scenario, whose results
are bellow. Imc is  the continuous variable body mass index, ccaa are
regions and edadcen is age centered. Stata is not providing the result
of the F test. When I click on the F test, it explains that the number
of variables exceeds the number of constraints, but I do not
understand why it limits the number of constraints bellow the actual
number of variables (30 constraints instead of 33). There is no
collinearity among regressors and no variable is non-zero for just a
single cluster.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Best regards,

Angel Rodriguez-Laso
