Since I have very small size of time series data set (20 obervation) I am using CD production function with CRS TFP = Total Factor Productivity? CD = Cobb-Douglas?

Log(Y/L) is about 4 times greater than Log(K/L). The above regression would generate predicted values of around 5. > 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.
