Only a few suggestion 2. IMHO -xttobit- is still better than -xtreg- even if you don't have censored observation 4. I have Stata 9.2, in which you are warned *against* adding dummis for the panel indicators Sorry for not being so much useful, Nicola P.S. I'll NOT receive/read any email but the Digest.
