As part of the calculation, -xtregar- needs to calculate first differences of
the data. Stata is trying to obtain the first differences using observations
from 1969, 1979, and 1989. Since none of these observations are present,
-xtregar- exits with r(2000) no observations.
Liliana can solve this problem by creating another time variable, say t2,
I hope that this helps.
