I don't know if I understood the data structure correctly, but if I do, this should produce a tsset that you can then use with xtreg or other panel data tools. There's probably a better way to do this than what I'm suggesting.

gen individual_ID = 1
replace individual_ID = individual_ID[_n-1] + 1 if (_n>1) & (year[_n] == year[_n-1])
quietly sum individual_ID
replace individual_ID=individual_ID + (id - 1)*r(max)
tsset individual_ID year
