```Dear STATA users

I am trying to replicate the same results using the HT command in STATA. I follow Baltagi´s textbook, first estimating the fixed effects model, and then regressing within residuals on the time invariant variables using as instruments the exogenous variables (X1, Z1). The next step would be to estimate the variance components. Sigma eta is based on the square sum of within residuals

sigmaeta= sum(sqrwithin)/(NT-N)
and sigma1=(yi-Xi.Betawithin-Zi. gamma)' (yi-Xi.Betawithin-Zi. gamma)/N

However, I think that I computed wrongly sigma1

Someone could help me

Regards

Toni

*HAUSMAN TAYLOR APPROACH;

tsset pid wavenum, yearly
xthtaylor \$yvar \$exoght \$endht if male==1, endog(\$endht)
xthtaylor \$yvar \$exoght \$endht if female==1, endog (\$endht)

* GENERATE LIST OF VARIABLES (Xit);

*ENDOGENOUS VARIABLE;

global yvar "lnh"

* CREATE VECTOR OF EXOG. VARS ("X1" "Z1");

global exoght "nonwhite hhsize age age2 age3 widowed divsep nvrmar nch04 nch511 nch1218"

* CREATE VECTOR OF ENDOGENOUS VARIABLES ("X2" "Z2"), correlated with indiv. effects;

*FIRST STAGE; CONSISTENT ESTIMATES FOR TIME VARYING VARIABLES
*FOR MALES

*CALCULATION OF THE VARIANCE COMPONENTS

gen sigmav=(sumsqrw)/(27817-4662)
gen sigma1= (yi-xi*bw-zi*gamma)'*(yi-xi*bw-zi*gamma)****

*TRANSFORM THE VARIABLES, etc

gen =(y-theta*my)
