In that case I really don't understand what you are seeking. See also Yuval's comments. I've never come across a model in which there are a different number of predictors for different observations, although I am always happy to be educated. It seems to me that 1. Either you are applying a standard model, in which case you can give literature references. 2. Or this is a new model, in which case you need to explain how it would be set-up and estimated. Note that it's easy to get variables such as the mean of the other prices in the same family. See FAQ . .
