Bjorn, I am perhaps misunderstanding your model. Here is a code snippet you can paste into to Stata and run. ****************Begin do file******************** webuse lutkepohl *** Estimate consumption=a+b*(c*income[_n-1]+invest) *** The reduced form is consumption=a + d*l.income + b*investment *** This is what we will estimate with Stata regress consu l.income invest *** From these estimates, we can recover parameter c. *** Since d=b*c, we have c=d/b *** In Stata speak this is _b[l.income]/_b[investment] nlcom (_b[l.income]/_b[investment]) *************End do file Does that accomplish your task? Let me know. Ed On Mon, 2005-10-10 at 13:47 -0400, bpersson@bu.edu wrote: > Hi Ed, > > Thank you for your reply.
