Hello,

Please I am new in stata so it's quite difficult for me to solve some regression problems.

Actually, I am trying to estimate an endogenous switching regression model using the movestay command where my selection dependent variable is ADOPT(dummy) while my outcome dependent variable is HDDS(continuous).

Unfortunately I keep getting the following error. i tried to add the variables progressively but either of the messages below. the strange part is that the same command was ran on a different computer using the same of stata and it produced results without any errors.

I am getting desperate. Can someone help me solve this problem? Please

global str GENDER AGE YEARSOFEDUC INCOMEO DISNEARESTMARKETKM TENURE CREDITACCESS

. movestay(HDDS=$str),select(ADOPT=$str MEDIA)

Fitting initial values .....

initial: log likelihood = -<inf> (could not be evaluated)

could not find feasible values

r(491);

or

movestay HDDS INCOMEO AGE AGRICEXPERIENCE ,select(ADOPT=MEDIA)

Fitting initial values .....initial vector: copy option requires either a matrix or a list of numbers

r(198);
