st: matched data error with -clogit-

To statalistserv,

I'm a graduate student in political science at the University of
Toronto and I'm having problems generating residuals and influence
statistics after a -clogit- model.

I'm exploring the effect of economic variables on coup occurrences
using a case-control research design (see Goldstone et al. 2010 for an
example of this method) whereby my 'control' cases of stability are
matched with my 'treatment' instability cases. My data is currently
stored in typical country-year time-series format. I've have no
problems with the model, storing estimates, or even creating predicted
probabilities.

The problem arises after I've run my model:

. clogit <DV: coup> <IVs: inflation, infant mortality, growth, etc.>
if nomiss = 1, group (controlsvo)
...
<output>
...
. predict hat, hat
"diagnostics after clogit are allowed only for 1-M matched data"
r(459);

My control cases were generated as follows:
mark samplesvo if (coup5 == 0 & f.coup == 0 & coup == 0) | (coup == 1)
[i.e., no coups in a seven year period | coup-year]
egen controlsvo = concat (year region) if samplesvo == 1

My data is not consistently matched (1:N) across control groups but
varies from group to group. I've been reading through Scott and Long's
'Regression Models for Categorical Outcomes Using STATA' and the STATA
reference manual but I don't know if it's a problem with either my
panel-data format or my coding.

Where am I going wrong? I would happy to send along my code and data
if needed. The model works well enough but I would really like to
check for outliers and influence statistics.

Thanks in advance!
