Testing for omitted variables should play an important part in specification analyses of statistical "linear form" models. Such omissions may comprise terms in variables that were included themselves (e.g., a quadratic term, or a categorical specification instead of a metric one), interactions between variables in the model, and variables that were left out to begin with. Re-estimating models with additional variables and performing (for example) likelihood ratio tests is time-consuming. Score tests provide an attractive alternative, since the tests can be computed using only results from the model already estimated. We present a Stata command for performing score testing after most Stata estimation commands (e.g., logit, heckman, streg etc.). This command supports multiple-equation models, clustered observations, and adjusted p-values for simultaneous testing.
