Careful! The association between -suest- and -sureg- is rather loose, in
spite of similar names. 

You may want to show your output with the "constant" issue to enable
Statalisters to answer your question...

Betreff: st: constant in the suest command

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)
