Dear STATA users
I want to estimate TFP. Since I have very small size of time series data set (20 obervation) I am using CD production function with CRS and perfectly competetive market assumption. But I dont know how to write stata command. Following is the data set.





Year     Ln(K/L)      Ln(Y/L) 

 1981     2.1715      8.4583 
1982     2.1887      8.5757 
1983     2.2061      8.5374 
1984     2.2214      8.6244 
1985     2.2346      8.7500 
1986     2.2453      8.7886 
1987     2.2558      8.8013 
1988     2.2652      8.8624 
1989     2.2736      8.9083 
1990     2.2805      8.9494 
1991     2.2875      9.0049 
1992     2.2904      9.0085 
1993     2.2934      8.9990 
1994     2.2963      9.0333 
1995     2.2989      9.0199 
1996     2.3031      9.0336 
1997     2.3070      9.0385 
1998     2.3110      9.0307 
1999     2.3138      9.0327 
2000     2.3164      9.0534 

 
K=capital L=labor Ln=log
I found one paper using the same data set estimated Ln(Y/L)=4.43 +0.46Log(K/L) But I get very different result. So could you please to suggest me STATA code to estimate CD function and to find TFP and Change in TFP.
 
Thank you in Advance.
