<> I'm not sure -nmissing- is the answer here, as this involves listwise deletion: any observation with a value missing in any variable in the regression will be dropped. Something like this will test for that: sysuse auto,clear replace turn = . if foreign & mod(_n,2) replace weight = . if !foreign & !mod(_n,2) nmissing price rep78 turn weight g ts1 = rep78+turn g ts2 = rep78+weight g ts3 = turn+weight g ts4 = rep78+turn+weight g ts5 = length+displacement+gear_ratio su ts* The N reported by summarize is the number of cases that would enter the regression, given these regressors.
