Thanks guys. I tried with the nmissing and mvpatterns, but certainly these do not fulfill my objective. I will test the commands recommended by Kit. One additional comment: I saw that there is no possibility of running xtreg together with stepwise. In these cases how can I avoid to do the tests manually to keep-drop variables?
