hello list,

i have a simple question which is bothering me. i could not find any
answer to it in the literature.

i used the coldiag2 command to check for correlation. i found high
correlation between an independent variable and the constant. but the
theoretical part of my thesis clearly suggests to include a constant.

does anybody know what to do to get around that problem?

thank you very much

frank
