But unfortunately, "the method generally produces biased estimates of the coefficients." The logic of why that leads to biased estimates is discussed in the link I gave before. So my recommendation is still "do not do that". > **dummy indicator for missing income values > > gen xhincome=hincome > replace xhincome= 29304.99 if missing(hincome) > gen md=0 > replace md=1 if xhincome! =hincome > > xtmixed dprt age age2 gender married separated divorced widowed eduyrs ichldhm md lhincome ihealth iuemp5yr iuemp12m rgdp06[pw=dweight] if md==0 || cntry: gender , mle > > > But I still got the same message, the md indicator variable is dropped. How can İ estimate the model controlling for missing values in income? a) I repeat: the method you want to use does _not_ control/adjust/solve/remove for missing values. So you should not use it. b) you probably still have the same missing values on lhincome, so in the estimation sample md is still a constant. (I am delibaretly not telling you how to solve it, as I don't want you to do something that is wrong) -- Maarten --------------------------------- Maarten L.
