Re: GMM - counting of instruments

If you use all the independent variables as instruments, at least in a linear model, you basically get the least squares estimates.

Re: GMM - counting of instruments

I may have read too quickly, but are all your independent variables also instruments in the first two?

Re: Dependent Variable on the firm level and independent variables on the country level

Nothing wrong with what you're doing.

Country level fixed effects would probably be a good idea.

Re: Fixed Effects

Seems like you're showing that profitability of the industry matters for profitability of the individual firm. Not too surprising.

None of this is a limitation of either the software or the estimation technique though.

Re: Fixed Effects

I have indeed interest rates for each year. These are the same for each company as I am using the 10Y bond rate. Just to make it clear, I am going for panel estimation, where I select fixed effects for both cross-section and period. With 2-way I get estimation output, with a sign.coefficient for in...

Re: Fixed Effects

Not quite sure what you did, but if you include time fixed effects and the interest rate is constant for each time period then the two are indeed perfectly multicollinear.

Re: Fixed Effects or GMM-System? Panel Data Estimation GDP x Social Spending of Municipalities

If your Y variable can affect your X variable you should use GMM. GMM can also handle heteroskedasticity and autocorrelation.

Re: saving all equations as tables in a workfile

You might try saving the tables in a spool and then saving the spool in .rtf format.

Re: Forecasting Ridership Data

@weekday gives the day of the week. You probably want to use the ls command to specify an ARIMA or other model including dummy variables for the day of the week or for the season of the year.
