st: problem levpet command |

Hello, My knowledge about Stata is limited and a feel ashamed that i have to bother you with my question because maybe I just made a stupid mistake in the command that I use. But I really do not know how I can solve the problem and I could not find a solution on the internet. I want to use the following command: . levpet logSales, free(logEmployees) proxy(logMaterials) capital(logCapital) i(number) t(Year) revenue I get the following error: repeated time values within panel r(451); I have no idea why i get the ''repeated time values within panel'' error. I am 100% sure that there are no duplicates: . dupliactes list Year number result: no observations are duplicates By only using a part of my dataset i get an idea what the problem is: . levpet logSales if (NACE<=1531), free(logEmployees) proxy(logMaterials) capital(logCapital) i(number) t(Year) revenue Now I get the results of the levpet command. However there is something strange: Dependent variable represents revenue. Number of obs = 148 Group variable (i): number Number of groups = 5756 Time variable (t): Year Obs per group: min = 1 avg = 4.1 max = 5 The number of observations is 148 and the number of groups is 5756? Then I see that the average number of observations per group is 4.1 This means that the number of groups should be 36 and not 5756. I really have know idea what is going wrong. I just like to get the levpet results for my whole dataset. The . help levpet command do not give me the answer. Others papers that I have read and that are using the levpet command are telling that it is straightforward to use the levpet command. Can someone help me Yours sincerely Pim _________________________________________________________________ Jouw nieuws en entertainment, vind je op MSN.nl! http://nl.msn.com/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
