OK, I see. You don't have -if- or -in- statements in your -logit-
regressions, but it still could be that missing observations result in
what you've -fvset- as base being omitted from your regression
samples.

Try something like -fvset base last year- before your regressions. You
should do the same for the -lb*- variable (I guess it is represented
by one of the local macros).

"HTH" is an acronym for "hope this helps." Sorry for the short-hand. :-)
