In STATA one can estimate a linear regression using the command
regress. In this post I will present how to use the STATA function
regress to run OLS on the following model
In this example, our dependent variable will be my weekly average weight, the explanatory variable represents the sum of calories that I burned during the previous week. For a more detailed description of the data see here.

regress returns point estimates for and . Moreover, the function returns standard error for the point estimates, along with its t-statistic, the p-value and 95% confidence intervals. The function also allows to conduct multiple regressions. That is, the function allows additional explanatory variables that can simply be added to the function as additional arguments.
