Hi everyone,

I want to estimate a panel model with observations on approx. 90 countries for five points in time between 1980 and 2005. However, one of my explanatory variables is endogeneous. The only possible instrument is a variable on climatic zones. So it would be the same for each country over all points in time. How can I put this into my model? Do I just put the same value for each country over all the points in time and then use xtivreg?

Best
Matthias
