My primary problem is that I have to estimate the initial capital stock (K_0 ) for each firm. As a general rule, it is used the book value of fixed capital (K) in the first year of data (e.g. 1996) for each firm. How can I command Stata to consider this first observation (firm by firm) and then compute a capital stock series, using a perpetual inventory and a constant rate of depreciation? A previous post doesn't help me much on this point.
