Re: st: Fixed-effects models and coefficient for a constant variable
you might have a look at the Hausman-Taylor IV estimator. See e.g. Wooldridge, 2002, Econometric analysis of x-sectional and panel data, pp. 325-328 or Verbeek, 2004, A guide to modern econometrics, pp. 353-355.
In Stata, type help xthtaylor.
