If you are using under multilevel frame work it seems to be sensible.

Then you can use tsset to declare the data format.

 Is the sibling ID birth order ?

Like other fixed effect models for a sibling fixed effect estimation does the data have to be in the long format with each sibling from the family listed in a different row? So for instance if in family i if there are 3 siblings a, b a and c then the data would be like:

Family ID  Sibling Sibling ID   X
i               1          a             ...
i               2          b             ...
i               3          c             ...

Does this sound correct? I will really appreciate your input.
