Leaving aside the missing values, do you have any advice on how to add additional variables one step at a time from a list of independent variables using a loop: list of indep vars x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 Model 1 reg y x1 Model 2 - add another var reg y x1 x2 Model 3 - add another var reg y x1 x2 x3 On Wed, Mar 10, 2010 at 5:23 PM, Christopher Baum <baum@bc.edu> wrote: > <> > Please could you advise me on how to write a macro so that I can add > regression variables one step at a time for only non-missing cases.
