Hi Maarten,
Thanks for the link.  I read it but I wonder - does perfect
prediction result in exclusion of those observations?
Yes, but you should be getting a warning message about cases being dropped if that is what is happening. In addition, you said you had 12,000 case for logit/probit and 10,000 for ols. Unless you had that backwards, that would not be consistent with cases being dropped because of perfect prediction, i.e. the N for logit/probit should be smaller than the N for ols if perfect prediction is costing you cases.



Hi Richard,
I checked again and my runs aren't different.  I simply
replaced the -reg- with -logit- and re-run the command, and
get a different no. of obs.  I am not sure how useful would
pasting my command be for you because there's really
nothing different between the two commands that I am
running (except the estimation method.)
Is there anything else involved, like weights or clustering?
