I studied -xthtaylor-, but I'm not sure if it's the case. Probably I have to go back to it and study it better. Do you think it could be the appropriate command? Thanks, Stefano -----Messaggio originale----- Da: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Per conto di Austin Nichols Inviato: domenica 4 maggio 2008 0.31 A: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Oggetto: Re: st: time invariant vars and fixed effects Stefano Costalli <stefano.costalli@imtlucca.it>: I think the approach is ill-advised, but you can ssc inst fese help fese for a program to save estimated fixed effects and SEs from a FE regression, then specify the SE as aweights in your second regression (weighting the second step by the precision of the estimates from the first step). The standard errors in the second regression will still be wrong, so a Murphy-Topel correction [see SJ 6(4):521--529] or -bootstrap- may be required. Is this designed to recover a RE-type estimate? Presumably when -hausman- rejects RE? You may want to try -xthtaylor- here instead.

I have tried with -xtfevd-, a command recently written and discussed on this forum, but I'd like to do some comparisons. > I found a paper where the author says that he calculated the coefficients of time invariant variables in two steps. First, he runs the fixed effects model with all indep. vars. and then he runs an ols regression of the time invariant variables on the results of the fixed effects (that in this step embody the dep. var.). I have some problems in understanding this step. > Could someone help me? How would you transtale it in stata language? I mean, the first step is easy (-xtreg- with -fe- option), but then how should I save the results of the fixed effects? And, finally: do you think the solution he proposes is correct? * * 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/ * * 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/
