Dear Markus, Thank you indeed for your illistartion. I understood why Stata dropped my lagged dependent variable, MY data over the period 1980 to 2008 And you said that I need the level of GDP IN THE PREVIOUS PERIOD (t-1) SO IF I want to have the initial gdp per capita in the dynamic panel data , can i calculate it like this 1981-1980 , 1982-1981 , etc And then I will get no value in 1980 It seems to me like taking the difference, Regarding why I labelled the variables, because I tried to apply the mg using the same formula in your demo lab2, but unfortunately I could not.

"lngdpc0", I would guess, is log of GDP per capita IN THE BASE YEAR. You cannot have a variable that does not change over time in these dynamic regressions. This is different from a cross-section regression, like in Mankiw, Romer & Weil (1992, QJE). You need to have a variable which represents the level of GDP IN THE PREVIOUS PERIOD (t-1), not in the base year. Also, why do you label all variables with the prefix d-, even if they seem to be levels variables? In the example you quote, which is from my demo ado, you can see that there are growth rates (d- prefix) and lagged levels (l- prefix) to clearly distinguish them from each other. If you use this setup you'll be able to run an ECM which delivers the results you're looking for. m Markus Eberhardt ESRC Post-doctoral Research Fellow, Centre for the Study of African Economies, Department of Economics, University of Oxford Stipendiary Lecturer, St Catherine's College, Oxford web: http://sites.google.com/site/medevecon/home email: markus.eberhardt@economics.ox.ac.uk twitter: http://twitter.com/sjoh2052 mail: Centre for the Study of African Economies, Department of Economics, Manor Rd, Oxford OX1 3UQ, England On 21 June 2011 14:56, Nahla Samargandi <Nahla.Samargandi@brunel.ac.uk> wrote: > Thank you indeed for replying. > There are more that one command regarding the MG which of them that use to estimate Error correction Model - TO estimate a long - short Run relationship (ARDL ) Autoregressive distributed lag ) > > 1- > ECM - MG > xtmg dlY llY llW llK dlW dlK , trend robust > > 2- > nlcom ((_b[llW])/(-_b[llY])) ((_b[llK])/(-_b[llY])) , post > > I got this result from the first one, > gen dgdp=l.gdp etc > > xtmg dgdpg lngdpc0 deducation dlnca dlnpop dfl1, trend > > Pesaran & Smith (1995) Mean Group estimator > All coefficients present represent averages across groups (cou) > Coefficient averages computed as unweighted means > Mean Group type estimation Number of obs = 1306 > Group variable: cou Number of groups = 52 > Obs per group: min = 12 > avg = 25.1 > max = 28 > Wald chi2(4) = 36.51 > Prob > chi2 = 0.0000 > ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ > dgdpg | Coef.
