st: I am new in the list, (doubts on Xtabond) |

My name is Gabriela Lopez. I want to calculate total factor productivity but in the papers I have read the authors first use the General Method of Moments. They run an xtabond model and take the coefficient of the lagged dependent variable and the capital per worker to calculate total factor productivity as a residual. Can anyone tell me how to do it exactly or recommend a paper or papers I can read to understand it. I have run several xtabond regressions to obtain the coefficients mentioned above. Then I calculate the total factor productivity (but I am not sure I am doing it correctly) to run OLS regressions using variables of trade liberalization but I can't get good results. What is my problem? The Sargan test and the statistics of first and second order correlations are described in the xtabond regression in Stata, which other test do I have to consider? I hope anyone can help me, it is really urgent!!!!1 -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Michael S.

I have been wondering if there might be a way to only show command results and text explicitly displayed in the log file (or in the Results window in certain cases), rather than all the commands as well. Conceptually (I think), a -log- file with the contents of -cmdlog- stripped out. I haven't been able to track down any ado files that might achieve that goal....

I never would have thought of it myself.
