Dirk P. <libaersd@umkc.edu>:
Reconceptualize your panel data as a cross-section of lives of firms.
You can describe subsequent trajectories, but you have a cross-section
of data on lifetime outcomes; firms are only founded once.  A survival
regression is one analysis to consider; see -help st- and -findit
hshaz-.

I am interested in examining attributes of the founding context of these firms and their short, medium, and long-term impact on various measures of firm performance. In essence I want to test the imprinting hypothesis that posits that elements in the founding contexts will leave long lasting imprints on various firm characteristics. The founding conditions I like to test are:
