That's certainly something worth keeping in mind, but economists tend to
like large models with a couple dozens of regressors that would include
age, gender, race/ethnicity, years of schooling, parents years of
schooling, and all other stuff of that kind, for which there's going to be
far many more patterns, so -gllamm- would have to be run on the original
data. That was the case I reported -- I think I had something like 5 to 8
regressors with a mix of continuous and discrete ones.
