Thank you for the immediate reply. Now, I'm able to narrow the problem down. I constructed y with the help of the time series operator "L1". This operator doesn't seem to work together with estout. I don't get betas if I do the following: input time y x .1 44 52 .2 33 23 .3 12 23 .4 76 87 .5 60 71 end tsset time eststo beta: reg y L1.x esttab beta, beta I "fixed" the problem by creating lagged values with the help of [_n-1] instead of using the time series operator. -------- Original-Nachricht -------- > Datum: Thu, 23 Aug 2007 16:41:55 +0200 > Von: "Ben Jann" <ben.jann@gmail.com> > An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Betreff: Re: st: estout - betas > Thanks Rich.
