I'm guessing that your fixed effects are fixed by the countries?

Well if that's what you do then it's because running a fixed effects
model (xtreg, fe) is equivalent to running the same model with the
country dummy variables (reg).

Hi everybody,

When running a regression on my panel data for per capita growth, i
would like to include a dummy variable for the OECD Countries. Once
using a fixed effects model however, it is dropped.
May be it is just too late to work, but could somebody point out why
Stata does that?

Any pointer appreciated.
Thanks.

Steffen.
