..- help for ^grand^ (statalist distribution 02feb1998) ..- Compute an estimate of the grand mean/intercept and differences from the grand - ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ^grand^ indicator_variable_list [^, l^evel^(^#^)^ ] Description - ----------- For use after ^fit^ to present a set of indicator/dummy variables in a "grand mean" and difference from the "grand mean" form. The specified list of variables (indicator_variable_list) must be orthogonal and completely span the space. The model estimated by fit must include the complete list of indicator variables that fully span space. Use the ^hascons^ or ^nocons^ on ^fit^ to allow the full set of indicators to be included in the model. Note, -grand- cannot be used after -regress-, it requires some of the results stored by -fit-. Options - ------- ^level(^#^)^ specifies the confidence level, in percent, for confidence intervals; see help @level@.
