Dear statalist,

I want to estimate a system of equations. Since heteroscedasticity seems to be an issue and according to the 'Breusch-Pagan test of independence' there are no efficiency gains from -sureg- I decided to use -suest-.

The equations are estimated by fixed effects. In order to be able to use -suest- I estimated the equations using -regress- and including a full set of time and country dummy variables while dropping the constant. However,  -suest- keeps returning a constant. What constant is that? And how can it be interpreted?

Thanks for your consideration (of this rather basic question)
