If the dependent variable is first-differenced (i.e, change in unemployment -I'm using the d.variable command) and one would like to control for the lagged dependent variable on the right-hand side of the regression, should one lag the "first-differenced variable" (i.e, lagged change in unemployment) or should one lag the level variable (lagged unemployment -using the time-series command l.variable). To be clearer say you have: d.unemployment = dependent variable Should one use "l.unemployment" as the Lagged DV in the right-hand side or should one lagged the first-differenced variable?

D.x = alpha + beta L.x + eps implies x_t = alpha + (1+beta) x_t-1 + eps

In the other case, D.x = alpha + beta LD.x + eps implies x_t = alpha + (1+beta) x_t-1 - beta x_t-2 + eps
