The only idempotent matrix that is not singular is the identity matrix. All others won't have an inverse. Al Feiveson -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu]On Behalf Of BASSOLE Sent: Sunday, October 31, 2004 12:49 PM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: Could Not Find Idempotent Matrix Inverse Dear all, I trying to program to make estimate multi-way error components models with unbalanced data structures. My program is based on Peter DAVIS (2002) article on Journal of Econometric. When I want to make the inverse of Idempotent matrix (Qhhvv), STATA return the error message "Matrix has missing value". But, before making the invers, I check the missings values in the matrix and no missing values are present. After this I decide to calcul the determinant of this matrix, and here STATA return dot, instead of the value of determinant. I dont know why. Before send the mail I make the same program in TSP, and here I have not see the programe for calculate the inverse of the same matrix (Qhhvv). /*Create the orthogonal projection matrices for each variances component*/; *For Household*; mkmat idm1-idm346, matrix(hh); mat Phh = hh*(inv(hh'*hh))*hh'; mat Qhh = INN - Phh; *For Villages*; mkmat codevillage1-codevillage58, matrix(vv); mat Pvv = vv*(inv(vv'*vv))*vv'; mat Qvv = INN - Pvv; /*Apply Lemma 1 (p.70) in Davis(2002)*/; *Here, X1 are households and X2 villages*; mat Qhhvv = Qhh*vv; mat Qhhvv = Qhh*vv; mat PQhhvv = Qhhvv*inv(Qhhvv'*Qhhvv)*Qhhvv'; matrix has missing values r(504); Does anybody know the solution to this problem?
