Subject   st: controlling for covariates in the panel data

Hi list,

I have been working on the panel data in Stata. My regression model has some covariates which means we need to control for some variables while running the regression. To be more specific, it means that I am running the regression for the drowning rate for various counties. And wants to test whether drowning rate changes with change in various urbanization factors, controlling for doctors given in each county and the swimming pools available in each county. How do we account for covariates in the panel data? Is it just simply putting them in our regression equation or there is some other way?

Another problem is that although I have data for drowning rate, urbanization factors for n number of years. However, the data for doctors is available only for few years and swimming pools data is available only for 1 year for all the counties. Please suggest me how to go about it.

I am very new to panel data as well as Stata. Please guide me through it.

Thanks!
