```Kensuke,

You need to work at more firms or control for fewer variables.

```
I read this as suggesting that you have worked at six firms and are trying to control for five variables (plus whichever represents you) ; and then there is a constant.
```
Not the best place for multiple regression.

```Dear Statalist subscribers,

I am currently trying to make a simple regression model where I include myself as a variable influencing the firms revenue. This is for a small presentation I need to make to a firm for a interview process. I have run a multiple regression, but I am getting peculiar results where some of my coefficient variables are dropped and I don't get any numerical values for the certain columns (see below). I will appreciate if I could get your help as soon as possible. Thank you.
