First thing to check is the sampled cases.  If some of your variables contain zeros or negative values they will be excluded if you attempt to log them, so results will differ because the sample differs.

What are your exact "mathematical operations".  We can't help you without knowing exactly what you did.

Hello everyone,

I was wondering whether anyone has made a similar experience in the
past: I am running a FE estimation with the SAME data and the SAME model but for some reason I get different results every time I run it.

I do not have any "special" commands in my do file except some basic mathematical operations. Could it be because I also have some log transformations?

It is just really strange to me.

Thanks in advance.

Miyu
