However, they appear in the output, while preschkid and schkid > are left out. Mark reruns the model omitting cohort and female and gets the same results with correct labels. Mark has found a labeling bug in -xtpoisson, fe- when variables are dropped from the beginning or middle of the varlist. This bug will be fixed in the next ado file update. --Jean Marie jlinhart@stata.com * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
