i have little experience with stata8 and hope one of you may help me...
i have a time series regression with several explanatory variables, the dependent variable being trend-stationary... i have generated the following variable to account for the trend in the process and to inlcude it in the regression:

gen date = quarterly(time, "yq")

tsset date, quarterly

gen time_ind= int(date)

when i run the regression with the "time_ind" included as explanatory variable, does it take care of the trend and is it a trend or time dummy?

thanks a lot for your help... matthias
