I'm not sure there are any general tricks, although perhaps someone has a list of useful ones.

Re: Defining derivatives and constrains?

Hello There, I'm trying to fit the following equation (known as lotka-Volterra) to real data series (x, y, z) to estimate its parameters (a, b, c, d): dx/dt = (a)x - (b)x^2 + (c)x*y - (d)x*z Could you please help mw with followings? 1- how could I define dx/dt in the equation specification? 2- Is t...

bad axis scaling (not exactly a bug, but...)

Here's a scatter diagram with the y-axis being a dummy variable. Having the "2" label when no point is above 1 is kinda ugly.

window arrangement (more unnicety than bug)

The location of opening new windows could use a little work. Here's an example where a window was opened such that scrolling was required even though there was plenty of room for a better location.

Re: Fixed Effects- Industry and Year

I believe your problem is that there are many NA values in saving1 and that in the remaining sample there really is perfect multicollinearity.

Re: Fixed Effects- Industry and Year

You have probably fallen into the dummy variable trap.

Typing "labor" in the description field returns no series, not even CIVPART.
