Dear statalist members,

Because the optimization in the dfactor command would not converge if there
is not enough data,
I was wondering if there is possible to CONSTRUCT THE FACTORS BEFORE using

This would involve,

1)            Making a factor analysis with X, find factors F (with .factor
x1 x2 x3 ?)
2)            Including the factors of F directly in the dfactor equation
(the dependent will be one of the vars of X)
3)            Estimating the equation

Is my idea silly? I?m sorry, I?m new in Dynamic Factor Models and I?m having
problems with the estimation? I?m brainstorming solutions
