Line for the server...

This may help:

But bear in mind that collinearity means the collinear variables contain
almost the same information so one can safely be dropped. To say that x
should remain in there does not make much sense to me: Its collinear
counterpart tells (almost) the same story as x...

I am running a Logit model with 12 variables, the results says that variable
x was dropped because of collinearity. is there any command that can help
identify the other variable with wich x is correlated, the reason I am
asking for this is that x is an important variable and I prefer to drop
another variable and keep x. I remember doing this long time ago but I
forgot the command.

Many thanks,
