Ciao

I'm doing this kind of regression:

**"**

**proc** **genmod** data= data;

class id year / param=ref;

model y=

id year

x v w z

/ d=nb dscale;

estimate 'x' x **1** / exp;

estimate 'z' z **1** / exp;

**run**;

"

Since the nb is not a linear function I can not directly compere the coefficients (i.e betaX and betaZ) but I need to 1) look at the IRR and 2) to implement a post estimation analysis to test whether the coefficients estimated for x and z, are actually statistically different

The story in stata it is very easy: after your reg (for ex nbreg y x v w z, robust) the code is: test x= z

I'm trying to implement the same analysis in SAS with the regression above. I tried to use ods output and to implement ttest but I did get any results.

Actually my knowledge of SAS is not good as well my knowledge in econometrics and I did not find any clear description on internet about that test.

Can you help me?

Best

Luca
