Jann Q2/07 SJ 7(2):266--267 (no commands) tip on how to keep track of the observations that make up your estimation sample Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Eva Poen 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.
