Hi,

I am not sure what you are trying to estimate but I guess the potential correlation between your two estimations will cause a problem.

Are you willing to restrict cj to a certain value? If yes, you could estimate

y=a+b1(x1+c1w1)+b2(x2+c2w2).

That is, inserting the second equation and multiplying out. In the new equation, only bj is estimated; cj is set, i.e. restricted.

Dear All, How can I iterate a regression by feeding back back some parameter estimates at each step back into one of the regressors in the regression? Should I use foreach forval commands? To be specific: I have an equation y=a+b1*x1+b2*x2+c1*z+error but z=b1*w1+b2*w2 (for some variables w1, w2) I start with some initial z and estimate the above equation then compute the new z with the b1 b2 estimates from the regression output and run the regression again with this new z. I want to iterate this until convergence is obtained. Does anyone know how to carry out this procedure? Thank you in advance for any comments and help.
