Hi,

The problem is exactly what it says..your data has repeated year values within id. Is there a reason why there are repeated values? 
If not get rid of these repeated observations  and then tsset your data

bysort id: drop if year==year[_n-1]
tsset id year 

Hope this helps
R

Hello,

I have a problem when defining a panel. I type:

tsset id year

the error message is:
repeated time values within panel

Everything is ordere by id. What could be the problem?

Thanks
E
