Thank you for responding. I will try to clarify. The regression contains time-specific fixed effects only since control variables vary both on country-specific and country-pair levels. There is one reporter and multiple partners. Imports and exports are regressed separately, so presumably i and j indices are "meaningfully different". It is not possible to define id based on i and j since it will be constant over categories of goods. The -areg- command does not seem to handle the estimation correctly since it is not capable of recognizing how panels are constructed. Any suggestions to move forward with -xtreg- would be appreciated. Again, thank you!

See -help areg- for an alternative estimator, or -findit felsdvreg- etc. Are the i and j indices meaningfully different, or are these pairs of countries where identities are interchangeable? E.g. if you have exports and imports, the exports of country i to country j are presumably the imports of country j from country i, so perhaps you want fixed effects for each pair of countries, not each country. You seem to have used i to mean at least two different things in your email; perhaps you can clarify.
