# st: Summary Statistics and Xtabond

 From "Asiedu, Elizabeth" To Subject st: Summary Statistics and Xtabond Date Mon, 2 Oct 2006 04:39:41 -0500

```I'm using the xtabond command and would like to have the summary statistics (mean std.dev max min) of the variables included in the estimations. The "estat summarize" command reports the summary statistics of the differenced variables  (please see output below). I have two questions:

(1) How do I obtain the summary statistics for the actual variables (e.g., polrisklag, gdpcapgr..)

(2) Is it possible to get the data for the sample used in the regressions? I'm using an unbalanced panel data and therefore countries with one observation are dropped. How do I get the list of countries included in the estimations?

Thank you.
