<> I am working on an application to model the impact of social media on overall online media consumption. To that end, i have a panel of users. I am looking at the following specification : social_{i,t} = f_1( nonsocial_{i,t}, x_{i,t}) nonsocial_{i,t} = f_2( social_{i,t}, x_{i,t}) where : social_{i,t} i the social media of subject ``i" at time ``t" nonsocial_{i,t} i the non-social media of subject ``i" at time ``t" x_{i,t} are the co-variates of subject ``i" at time ``t". i could also have time fixed co-variates. I am looking at a linear model, where both f_1, f_2 are linear. Is there a way i can estimate such a model using stata? Yes, of course, as long as you have some plausible exclusion restrictions. If the X variables are the same in each equation, neither equation is identified. You could use official xtivreg or Schaffer-Stillman xtivreg2, from SSC, to estimate this model using fixed effects in the absence of time-invariant covariates.
