Dear Statalist members,



I am working on a database that has firm year observations. Each observation regards the degree of familiarity that a firm has with a new acquired technology. Accordingly the dependent variable measures the number of new products released in year t2. 



I am trying to run a FE or RE model capturing the effects of familiarity on the dependent variable (Probably a negative binomial). However, the problem is that I have multiple observations per year. In other words, the same firm may acquire more than one technology in the same year, that will have different degrees of familiarity. 



When I try to run the xtset firm_id year, I get the message repeated time values within panel. I read some topics explaining how to correct in case it is a mistake, but in my setting that is how the data really is. 



Would someone have any suggestion how to approach this issue?



Best Regards,



Alexandre James
