The Kiviet estimator is not a very good strategy (his own caveat) because it assumes that everything other than the lagged dep. var. (which is included by default) is strictly exogenous. See also: ftp://ftp.unibocconi.it/pub/RePEc/cri/papers/WP165Bruno.pdf To run the -xtlsdvc- with -xtreg, fe- estimates, do the following: /* Begin */ webuse nlswork, clear xtset idcode year // ssc install xtlsdvc, replace g lag_lnw = L.ln_w // inconsistent fixed effects estimator xtreg ln_w lag_lnw age ttl_exp tenure not_smsa south, fe mat my = e(b) // note that 1000 bs reps could take days xtlsdvc ln_w age ttl_exp tenure not_smsa south, initial(my) bias(3) vcov(1000) /* End */ T On Sat, May 2, 2009 at 1:59 PM, olfa alouini <olfasgb@hotmail.com> wrote: > Dear all, > > I have a panel of 15 countries, 40 years of data.

However including a lagged endogenous variable (in this case growth [ i t-1] makes the FE estimator I'd like to use inefficient. I know Kiviet (1995) proposed a way to correct the bias induced by the inclusion of the lagged variable.

I tried to retrieve my results from xtreg, fe and put them in the "my" matrix form but did not succeed.
