I assume you've read
http://www.stata-journal.com/sjpdf.html?articlenum=st0060 esp. section
2.2

If you give us more information on your data, you will likely get more
specific help. Is output y measured as log revenue?  How do you
distinguish between innovations in markup (caused by shifts in market
power) or final goods prices, on one hand, and TFP on the other? Or do
you not want to? How are other variables measured? In particular, do
you have capital both owned and leased by the firms? Are these treated
similarly?
