Dear statalist

Would you please let me know that when effect of one covariate flips
in the multivariate model, is it only because of overfitting or it can
have other reasons. This variable was significant in the univariate
analysis but when I used it in multivariate model which contained
another covariate that these too could be also colinear (one is
calander year and the other is year of
starting the study) it became insignificant and its effect reversed.

Kind regards,
Shell
