What is this?

I propose three simple principles:

1. If someone wants to join Statalist and post to it, they should
feel welcome, and they should read the FAQ to see how we operate. Nothing new there.

2. If someone wants to post something to Statalist on behalf of someone else, that's OK so long as they explicitly undertake to answer subsidiary questions and forward the answers.

3. Otherwise I see zero point in answering questions like this, as
we have no assurances of an answer being seen, or "someone" or "Martin"
answering any questions it raises. The appeal to urgency is also
objectionable.

Someone @ google answers asks:


Ok, I'm trying to run a
fixed-effects panel in stata.
My regression: (where var1 is the
depend. variable)

(PLEASE SEE DATA AT END) - Data
pasted from excel into stata via
editor
Stata commands were as follows:

"tsset id year"
"gen var1 = ln(x3)"
"gen var2 = ln(var 1[_n-1])" ie.
require ln(x3 i,t-1)
"gen var3 = ln(x2)"
"gen var4 = ln(5 +x1)"

xtreg var1 var2 var3 var4, i(id), fe

Now for the coefficient on var2 I
get 0.177, and I'm looking for
something around the 0.5 region.
I've gone wrong somewhere - can
someone please help???
It's pretty urgent as I need this by
Thursday morning at latest. If it
helps, I'm trying to estiamte the
model on page 1146 for OECD
countries, (but with my own data) in
Islam's paper: "Growth Empirics:
A Panel Data Approach" (1995)
I'm online all the time, so if
necessarty, I can clarify things
beforehand.
