I centered all my variables and ran the Prais-Winsten Regression with the centered variables. The coefficients are the same for uncentered and centered variables. I think that this can't be true. Does anyone know why this problem occurs?

Thank you

beta coefficients are just regression coefficients from z(y) = z(X)beta + e. Apply the z-transform to LHS and RHS variables and estimate the model. Ben Jann's -center- on SSC Is an easy way to do the standardization.
