Dear all,

how do you interpret the output of
?

I regress
and then type the above test. The output comes in the form

. test active = inactive

( 1) active - inactive = 0

F( 1, 11420) = 5.78

Prob > F = 0.0162

I believe that if (Prob > F) <= 0.05, the difference is significant, as in that the coefficients to b and c are statistically different from each other. Is this correct?

I know this is a basic question, but I want to make sure because some results I am getting do not match my intuition.
