Hi Scott,

I just tried to run the example you sent me- does it work on your computer? (i have stata se/8.2) I get an error message as below.
Thank you very much for the valuable hint!



Here is what I get:

. webuse grunfeld, clear

. areg invest mvalue [aw = kstock], ab(com)

Number of obs = 200
F( 1, 189) = 327.94
Prob > F = 0.0000
R-squared = 0.9082
Adj R-squared = 0.9033
Root MSE = 120.16

For fixed effects with weights you could use -areg- and for random effects
you could use Kevin McKinney's -rfregk-

rfregk invest mvalue [aw = kstock]

Hope this helps,

Hi everyone,

I have tried to solve a simple problem for days but I can't figure out how
to run it properly in Stata. If someone could give me a hint, this would be
really great.

Basically, I want to run a standard fixed, and random effects regression
(xtreg in STATA) but with _variable_ weights (they correspond to changing
industry shares in the market).

So, for the random effects I tried gllamm but always get an error message of
insufficient observations when I try to use weights.

Here is what I do:

sort ind7090
gllamm dsc dperc dcomp, i(ind7090) pw(wt)

any ideas what goes wrong?

(if there are no weights, then we just get the xtreg dsc dperc dcomp, fe
