Dear Mr. Weiss, Thanks for your reply! You are right---it should be -foreach-- rather than --local--. What I meant and actually used is using --foreach--to standardize all the variables. I don't know why I wrote into -local--. Thanks! I think I kind of find why the results given by the two methods are different. It maybe is due to missing values. That is, for some groups , there are missing values for some years and for some indepent variables. ------------------------------ group year y var1 var2 var 3 var4 1 1981 1 1 missing 0 1 1 1982 1 1983 2 1981 2 1982 3 1981 3 1982 3 1983 ------------------------------------ For the first observation, it's included in the way "standardizing varaibles first" because y , var1,var3-4 included this observation. But it's excluded from the way "using beta option directly". So, can I underdtand that it is an alternative way to get beta coefficents by standardized variables first and then use the regular commands? This is the question I'm interested in. Thanks a lot!
