Dear Statalist, I have been searching the archive for a while, but I am unable to find an adequate solution to the following problem. I have a panel dataset, where for each individual i the variable Zit equals 1 if individual i is treated at time t, and zero if not. Zit is completely endogeneous : individual i can choose at time t if Zit=1 or zit=0 I would like to estimate the first n nodes of a "tree" that gives me the transition probabilities from the first time an individual chooses Z=1 to the next n treatment states So the tree would look like Z1=1 ------> Prob(Z2=0) --------->Prob(Z3=0) ---------> >Prob(Z4=0) | | | -------> >Prob(Z4=1) | | | ----------->Prob(Z3=1) | | | | ------->Prob(Z2=1) ------> -|------> where Z1 is 1 because I start the tree from the first treatment time for each individual. Z2 is the treatment state in the next period. Prob(Z2=0) is therefore the probability to choose no treatment conditional on treatment at time 1. Do you have an idea ? I tried something with the L. operator but it did not work properly...
