My total dataset contains 7 regions. The estimation results for the 7 regions are fine. All R square are positive, all LR chi() are positive, and all degree of freedom are right. 2.

I chose the first 3 regions and created them as a new dataset (changed the dummy variables). When I estimated equations lnc, sl, sm, se, there are two negative R square values. So I changed them to ln, sl, sk, se and got one negative R-sq this time. LR chi() here are negative.
