Hi!

I want to estimate whether some observed individuals characteristics have led to a higher wage increase in an otherwise fixed (unobserved) individual characteristic panel data model, i.e. the level form model is as follows:

Y_it = a + a_i + b_t * Z_i + c * X_it

i = individual
t = periode
Y=Income
Z= dummy for male
X=Hours of labour

This implies the following model of changes:

(*) ch_Y_i = aa + (ch_b)*Z_i + c * ch_X_i

aa=constant that reflects constant period effects
ch_Y_i = change in income
ch_b = change in the effect of the observed characteristic of the individual
ch_X_i = change in hours worked

I can of course construct all ch_variables and run it as simple OLS regression with Stata command "reg". Meanwhile, I guess it easier (and more secure) to run some kind of fixed effect "xtreg" model in a "long" data set (years ordered in columns). How do I do this? What is the commands I should use?

Hope anyone can help me!

Cheers, Henrik
