I'm assuming you're using intercooled stata, so there is a maximum of 2,048 variables

Probably best to try

set matsize 800

If not,

set mem 2g

If you're struggling, it's possible to use the virtual memory more efficiently

set virtual on

Subject: st: SET MEMORY PROBLEM

Hi everyone,

I have a big database in which the number of rows is equal to 6519324 and the number of column is approximate to 170 (including fixed effects), and I have 5 years.

My model is the following:

I estimate:

lnX_ij=á+â_1 lnY_i+ â_2 lnY_j +â_3 lnPOP_I+â_4 lnPOP_J+â_5lnD_ij+åij

to estimate this model I have to use a poisson.

when I use all years I get following message:

no room to add more variables due to width

An attempt was made to add a variable that would have increased the memory required to store an observation beyond what is currently possible. You have the following alternatives:

1. Store existing variables more efficiently; see help compress.

2. Drop some variables or observations; see help drop. (Think of Stata's data area as the area of a rectangle; Stata can trade off width and length.)

3. Increase the amount of memory allocated to the data area using the set memory command; see help memory.

Instead when I use just one year I get next message:

matsize too small

You have attempted to create a matrix with more than 300 rows or columns or to fit a model with more than 300 variables plus ancillary parameters. You need to increase matsize using the set matsize command; see help matsize.

I have tried to set Stata memory in different ways, instance:

set matsize 500

set maxvar 2048

set memory 1350m

but stata doesn't work yet. My laptop has the following characteristics:

RAM 2047 MB

SYSTEM 32 BIT AND PROCESSOR CPU INTEL CORE 2 T7400@2.16 GHz

what can I do?

Thanks

federica
