Hello stata users:I'm guessing that either (a) "employed" isn't really coded 0 or 1, e.g. it is coded 1 or 2; or else (b) missing data on the RHS is causing you to lose all the cases that are either coded 0 or else coded 1.

Here is a question for you:

I am trying to run a logistic regression between the dummy "employed" with a number of RHS variables. I have 875 observations with 0 (not employed) and 2,185 employed (that is 1). Stata is telling me that "outcome does not vary; remember: 0 = negative outcome,

all other nonmissing values = positive outcome"

Do you have any suggestion on how I can correct this?

Thanks.

Leo

Just running a few descriptive statistics may help you to identify the problem.
