I did not mean that the province changed, but that the firms
changed with respect to to which province they belong. If that 
is not the case than the time constant covariates  should drop 
out, and the fact that they don't indicates an error somewhere 
in your data. Balanced or unbalanced should not make a 
difference.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
