I would like to append a question to the already asked one.

For the first difference command in xtivreg y z x (z = a b c), fd i(panelid) do I have to difference all variables, does the comand automatically do this, or is this not the first differencing I am thinking of?

Sorry for all those xt questions. I just ordered the xt manual, but can't wait till it gets here.

Thank you.

Hi again,

First, thank you to the people who reponded to my last question about the ,beta.

When using panel data with a first differencing approach as described in Wooldridge (2002) can I use the xt command? It looks like I can't from the help files. So I just difference all my variables and run a normal reg delta_y delta_x?

Thank you again,
