Does Stata know at this point that your data are panel data?  If not, 
some of the lags might be messed up.  For example, the 1-period lag 
for the first time period of observation 2 should be missing, but 
Stata might be using the latest time period of observation 1 instead. 
If you use tsset and then time series operators to create the lags, 
e.g., l2.lsrt instead of lsrt[_n-2], this won't happen and the lags 
will be correct.

Hope this helps.
