Thank you very much John! That's very helpful!

Regards,

Hi:

You don't need a Vuong test here. Because you are adding one parameter, 
the test of b3 = 0 is the test you want. That is simply the test of the 
significance of the parameter estimate. This is equivalent to the nested 
F-test:

sysuse auto
nestreg : reg price (mpg) (weight)

The F-change test for adding weight is equivalent to the t-test^2 of the 
parameter, i.e.,

dis (_b[weight]/_se[weight])^2

You can still use the lrtest after OLS.

reg price mpg
est store one
reg price mpg weight
est store two
lrtest one two

Best,
J.
