Dear Nick,

I don't want Stata to "try harder".
I just wanted to make sure that I don't do anything wrong.
My "doctor father" (supervisor) mentioned to me that in some statistics
there is a way to use every observation available (but he doesn't use Stata),
whereas I think Stata makes some kind of balanced panel out of my dataset when
there are missing observations for one country i at time t, i.e. doesn't use
of the observations available for i at time t because of the missings.
As I am still a beginner in Stata, I may as well be mistaken at this point.

But IF I'm doing something wrong, I really would appreciate somebody telling

It's not clear what you want Stata to do here given missings: try harder? 

If there are missings, the only way to get more out is to put more in, e.g.
impute values where missings would be otherwise. And then you need to discount
your results accordingly.
