Dear Statalisters,
I am estimating an equation in panel which takes dummies for 420 individuals
and 22 years.
I need to have the 420 fixed effects to use them in a second stage, but I
cannot find the way of dropping the constant to get 420 (and not 419) fixed
I tried putting "nocons" in as many places as possible (my sentence is
xi: xtreg depvar regressors i.indiv t.time), but xi still drops one of my
fixed effects (calculated as individual dummies)!
Has anyone got any suggestion on how to do this using xi or any other
command?  (I do need the fixed effects estimated, for I have to use their
sampling variance, or standard error, too).
Thanks very much!
