st: taking out the correct year-fixed-effects. |

Dear Listers, I have a balanced panel of households from 1995 to 2007. They are all hit by an unemployment shock in either of the years 1999-2003. Hence I can observe ALL households as early as 4 years prior to and 4 years after the shock. I run the regression -reg income relative-year-dummies calendar-year-dummies- ,where i leave out the calendar year dummy for 2004, to make that as a "base year". When i then plot the Constant+ relative year dummies in a diagram from relative year -4 to +4 where Year-Fixed effects are washed out , I can roughly state that "Income values are in 2004-$". Maarten simplified this work significantly by suggesting to run something like: -reg income relative-year-dummies calendar-year-dummies- -adjust calendar-year-dummies, by(relative_year)- This gives me a nice table with correct values for each of the relative years. However, this procedure gives the plot a different level. So I can no longer state that values are in the value of some base year. Does anyone know a way to set it up so I can again interpret the values to be of 2004-units ( or any other year). Thanks a lot for the help, Andreas * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
