I should add that -browse if e(sample)- works just as well, as long as
you haven't fitted another model in the meantime. e(sample) (like all
e() results) always refers to the most recently fitted model.
Therefore, if you want to compare which observations were used in two
different models, you have to generate an indicator variable along the
lines of -gen inmodel = e(sample)- before fitting the second model.
