Thanks for the answer Kit and all, I tried to use the command lincom in the following way: The data set is (a sample): var1 var2 var3 var4 var5 var6 var7 .576 1 0 0 1 0 0 .354 0 0 1 0 1 0 .542 1 0 0 0 0 1 .6354 0 1 0 1 0 0 .875 1 0 0 0 1 0 .524 0 1 0 0 0 1 .324 0 0 1 0 1 0 .643 1 0 0 1 0 0 .523 0 1 0 0 0 1 .089 0 0 1 0 1 0 and I regress : reg var1 var2 var3 var4 var5 var6 var7 and it drops var4 and var7 due multicollinearity. And I use lincom: lincom var4 But still I can not get the estimation of this parameter and the std error since it says dropped. Do you have any clue how can I solve this?..
