Markus-

I don't believe that the eigenvalues are associated with any
particular variable in the way the the VIF or Tolerance are.  These
are just the five eigenvalues of the sums of squares and cross product
matrix that includes the constant term.

Using the -collin- command, which eigenvalue # corresponds with the constant?

E.g., I use 4 variables after -collin- and get 5 eigenvalues. Is the constant
the 1st eigenvalue or the 5th one?

thanks,
