Here is an example: *------------------ begin example ------------------ sysuse auto, clear gen byte miss = missing(rep78) replace rep78 = 0 if miss logit foreign i.miss#c.rep78 weight *------------------- end example ------------------- (For more on examples I sent to the Statalist see: http://www.maartenbuis.nl/example_faq ) Hope this helps, Maarten On Mon, Apr 8, 2013 at 12:42 PM, Nick Baker <nb419@cam.ac.uk> wrote: > Thank you very much for your help Maarten, > I have implemented the first part of the method, but am unsure about the > second aspect: "Add the lag an interaction term between the indicotor > variable and the lagged variable".
