I am having trouble understanding why the standardized beta option in regress in Stata gives me different results when I manually standardize all variables. Say x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 y are the original data, X1 X2 X3 X4 X5 Y are standardized variables with 0 mean and 1 standard deviation. I have missing data on the x4 and y .

I thought regression (2) will give me same results as regression (3) since Stata manual says:

And it turns out the regression (4) gives very similarsame results to (2), but all the variables in regression 4 are already standardized. My guess is that since the variables are all proportions, they are not normally distributed and vary in range.For For instance x1 is between 0-0.4 while x2 is binomial distribution between 0-0.99. Would that be a problem? Should I choose (2) over (3) and why?

Standardized beta on standardized variables
