Can anyone help? Thanks.

Here is a quick and dirty solution. You'll need to modify the calculation of p if the sample is too small to justify a z approximation, i.e. use the t distribution instead.

* Run the regression first, then run this mat b = e(b) mat v = e(V) local k = colsof(b) mat z = J(1, `k', 0) mat p = J(1, `k', 0)

forval j = 1/`k' { local z = b[1,`j'] / sqrt( v[`j', `j'] ) local p = 2* (1 - normal(abs(`z' )) ) mat z[1,`j'] = `z' mat p[1,`j'] = `p' } mat list z mat list p
