Do you think I shoud use importance weights? thanks a lot, Manuela Steven Samuels wrote:

I had another thought. Your survey design may have included multi-stage sampling and stratification. -xtreg- cannot accommodateclusters other than panels. Within Stata you have one choice for ananalysis that accommodates weights and clusters: -gllamm-.-Steve On Oct 14, 2008, at 2:57 PM, Steven Samuels wrote:Manuela, You state you have a 3 year panel.

If all households were selected in thefirst calendar year, then the weights represent the population ofthat year. If households rotated in and out, they represent theyear in which they came in. The total sample then represents the"household-years" of the survey period.This is Austin Nichols's formulation. (http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2007-11/msg00245.html).There is a complication if you are interested in three calendaryears, say 2000 2001 2002, but some households started follow-upbefore 2000 and rotated out after 2000. Give those HH the weightfor 2000.-Steve On Oct 14, 2008, at 1:45 PM, mdeidda@stern.nyu.edu wrote:Dear Steven, the panel is unbalanced, the sampling unit is thehousehold.
