There are three possibilities here.
1. The -yr93- variable was dropped from all the models upon estimation,
in which case the above is the expected behavior since variable -yr93-,
which is being explicitly "kept" doesn't exist in any of the models.
2. The -yr93- variable was dropped from some, but not all, of the models, in
which case Alexander is encountering a known bug in the -estimates-
command. -estimates table- should display an empty cell for -yr93- for
those models where -yr93- was dropped and display information for models
where -yr93- was not dropped. Instead, -estimates table- erroneously
A fix for this bug will be made in a future ado update.
3. -yr93- was not dropped from any of the models, in which case Alexander
has possibly found a new bug. Alexander can email me with his data and
log file and I will look into it further.
