Benjamin,
Thanks. This is useful but I'd like to clarify and make sure I
understand your comments. I apologize if these are really elementary
questions. I'm still trying to figure this stuff out.
1) The data is not time series. I have data about firms for a single
time period, and I also have data indicating which firms belong to
which cluster of firms. From what I understand, you are suggesting
that I should use the Prais-Winston command in stata, with a "cluster"
option?? Did I understand you correctly?
2) I am a bit confused about whether I should be using SUR or
simultaneous equations.
My three equations look something like this:
y1=f(X+Z)+e_1
y2=g(X+Z)+y1+e_2
y3=g(X+Z)+y1+y2+e_3
This set of equations looks like simultaneous equations since
independent variables in one equation become dependent variables in
another. However, I also seem to remember that in cases where all
equations use the same exogenous variables (X and Z), I should be
using SUR.
Thanks for your suggestions and help. I appreciate it.
