Hello

To make an initial value a regressor you could do something like

Sort countryid time
Bys countryid: gen gdp_ini=gdp[1] 

Regarding the insignificance of your regressors, I guess that would depend on a lot of things, so I would suggest you seek help in the existing literatue within the subject you are working on.


Hope this helps
Jan

Subject: st: initial value of a regressor in panel data


Hi,
 
I am working with a panel of 107 countries over 1960 to 2010 averaged in five years data.
 
I have two questions:
 
1. How can I take initial value of say real gdp per capita as one of the regressors.
 
2. I have estimated the equations using xtabond, xtdpd etc but all the regressors are insignificant, how can i improve the estimates?
 
I have followed Cameron and Trivedi's Books Chap 9.
