You want to use Arellano-Bond procedure because in theory
you have a model like this (basic one)

y(i,t) = b*y(i,t-1) + a(i) +e(i,t)

a(i) is an unobservable cross-sectional unit effect. OK?

So far, I don't think there will be a serious problem to estimate
your dynamic binary model with -probit- or -logit- procedures. 
But becomes more complicated if you have a(i) in your model.

The solutions that I know are: -xtlogit- (fixed or random effects),
-xtprobit- (random effect) or -logit/probit- with dummies.

dear stata users

my question is as follows. is xtabond procedure adequate for binary 
response variable? if not, then how can I model dynamic model with 
discrete dependent variable?

kind regards
