Hello Stata Users:

I have a quick question on weighted Least squares:  Below is the
following econometric equation:

Q1+Q2 = alpha + [  (Q1/(Q1+Q2))*X1 + (Q2/(Q1+Q2))*X2 ]b + e

Where X1 and X2 are the same explanatory variables, however with
different numerical values.  For example, X1 would be the % in one
zone, and X2 is the percent in another zone.

Is there anything wrong w/ this logic?

How about this econometric model:

y2= alpha2 +beta2(P)+v

To obtain the aggregate effect one would sum:

y1+y2=(alpha1+alpha2) +(beta1+beta2)P+(e+v)

Is there anything wrong with the above logic?
