Thank you Austin, for all your advices. I will try it. I am not sure about the consistency of the estimates, but as i understood, in applying such a procedure (whose i can also use xtdata, fe) the problem is on the standard errors to be corrected for the first stage. Anyway, i will try with some simulation. many thanks for your patience 2008/5/28 Austin Nichols <austinnichols@gmail.com>: > alessia matano <alexis.rtd@gmail.com>: > I can't see where you got a repeated time values error.
