Dear All,

This might be a simple problem for those who are familiar with STATA, but it really makes me confused.

so, I have panel data
the period is in 5 year interval - across countries.
and I need to tsset the data before using xtabond and xtivreg fd
the format of my data are something like this:

isocode yr income
1 1965 1230
1 1970 1450
:
:
1 2000 3670
2 1965 2345
2 1970 3400
:
:

so how to tsset the data
I've tried to do this:

tsset isocode yr

then it appears on the result box:

panel variable: isocode, 1 to 18
time variable: yr, 1965 to 2000, but with gaps

then, I put command for xtivreg
but then the result is "no observation"

so my QUESTION: what command should I put to state 5 year interval and make it work?

I really appreciate for your help and comments
