Benjamin, Thanks. This is useful but I'd like to clarify and make sure I understand your comments. I apologize if these are really elementary questions. I'm still trying to figure this stuff out. 1) The data is not time series. I have data about firms for a single time period, and I also have data indicating which firms belong to which cluster of firms. From what I understand, you are suggesting that I should use the Prais-Winston command in stata, with a "cluster" option?? Did I understand you correctly? 2) I am a bit confused about whether I should be using SUR or simultaneous equations. My three equations look something like this: y1=f(X+Z)+e_1 y2=g(X+Z)+y1+e_2 y3=g(X+Z)+y1+y2+e_3 This set of equations looks like simultaneous equations since independent variables in one equation become dependent variables in another. However, I also seem to remember that in cases where all equations use the same exogenous variables (X and Z), I should be using SUR. Thanks for your suggestions and help. I appreciate it. dalhia On Sat, Oct 4, 2008 at 4:41 PM, Benjamin Villena Roldan <bvillena@troi.cc.rochester.edu> wrote: > Hi > You don't mention whether your data is a cross-section or a panel.
