Edlira, You can use xtabond or xtabond2. The estimators implemented in these two commands are still valid when x_(it-1) is used as a regressor, if that's what you're worried about. By using x_(it-1) as well x_(it) you loose a good instrument for x_(it), but that's only a concern if x_(it) is not exogenous, and it doesn't make the estimator inconsistent anyway. If you're worried about the xtabond estimator's consitency for N=33, T=23, check out the paper by Alvarez and Arellano (2003), "The time-series and cross-section asymptotics of dynamic panel data estimators", Econometrica, July. Consistency of the GMM estimator implemented in xtabond was initially established under the assumptions T fixed, N->infinity, or "small T, large N", which doesn't seem to apply to your sample. But Alvarez and Arellano have also shown this estimator to be consistent for T/N->c with 0<c<=2. Also, keep in mind that, as p increases in your model, you also loose some periods and some instruments.
