Hi Statalist,

I am trying to run - XTSUR - on unbalanced panel data. I let the
program run last night and it hasn't finished over the course of about
10 hours. This seems very strange for a small (462 observations, 24
groups, 2 equations with 8 or 9 variables each) regression and given
that sureg runs extremely fast (a few seconds) on the same data. I
looked at the data in the example for - XTSUR - and realized that
while the panel is unbalanced it has data at each observation for y1
and y2. In my problem I am looking at the percentage of orders that
brokers send to two different exchanges in a broker-quarter panel.
There are more than two exchanges that they could send their orders to
but I am only looking at the fully electronic exchanges. The problem
is that the first exchange opened well before the second exchange.
This means in early time periods I have data for the percent of orders
a broker sent to exchange 1 but a missing datapoint for exchange 2
since it was not open. Does anyone know if this could be causing my
problem? If so do you know of any way to get around it?
