<> If you add a -pause- before line 76 and look up the temps via -edit- you see that the last temp "__000000 float %9.0g Fitted values" has a couple of negative values - at least for my earlier example- If you ************* cou if __000000<0 ************* at that moment you see that those are the ones Stata omits later on... HTH Martin -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- Von: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Im Auftrag von Eva Poen Gesendet: Freitag, 20. Februar 2009 14:30 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: Re: st: AW: Weighted Least Squares - wls0 Further on this: The crucial line in the ado appears to be generate _wls_wgt = 1/(`p1') where `p1' is the linear prediction from an auxiliary linear regression (which may, of course, be negative, depending on the data). This applies to weight types abse and e2. I don't know if this calculation corresponds to what one can find in textbooks (I haven't checked). In addition to this, it seems that -wls0- is a little sloppy with handling [if] and [in] conditions (they are not applied to predictions and auxiliary regressions in the code). It is of course possible that there is an enhanced version of -wls0- out there, but invisible to -findit-.

There should be no problem in finding it. > > Martin - it is exactly the same in my case, STATA drops observations when I use "e2" or "abse". But if you say that I should not be concerned about the "restriction", I am a little reliefed as I get quite nice results with respect to the fitted values vs. residual plot in case of e2. > > If someone knows the reason behind this restriction, I would still be very interested in learning about it. > > Best > > Phil > > > -------- Original-Nachricht -------- >> Datum: Fri, 20 Feb 2009 13:48:06 +0100 >> Von: "Martin Weiss" <martin.weiss1@gmx.de> >> An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu >> Betreff: st: AW: Weighted Least Squares - wls0 > >> >> <> >> >> Phil, although I do have a hard time telling why Stata uses less variables >> for certain wls types here, you should not say that they have been >> dropped. >> That would be cause for concern indeed.
