I'm still a Stata novice, but I wonder if Stata knows that all your data
are numeric? That is, type -describe- or -codebook- to see if Stata is
interpreting your data as numeric, or as text strings.
And do you have a lot of missing values?
And do you need a .use "C/...usnwr3.dta" command before your .reg command?
