I am trying to estimate a fixed effects model with heteroscedasticity and
serially correlated corrected standard errors. I am currently using -newey2-
and including the fixed effects as dummies, but I thought that maybe STATA
has a safer (as some of the dummies get dropped on the way, changing the
interpretation of other dummies in the model) and more efficient way (it
takes me quite a while to estimate each specification).
I tried looking at the STATA search and website, but could not find any
obvious answer...Has anyone got any suggestions? It may be easier with
version 9, but (unfortunately) I only have version 8.2 at the moment.
Many thanks in advance!
