  • Spset in STATA 15

    I am working on real states sales data. Obviously, there are multiple sales within the same neighbourhood over the years (also in the same year). So, I wanted to ignore the time aspect (I can't have balanced panel to apply spatial econometrics) but spset strictly requires that I xtset my data. I just created id for each observation and tried to spset it (I already have _CX and _CY variables for postal codes, so I do not need a separate shape file). I get:

    invalid panel setting
    Type xtset to view panel data settings

    If you don't want to use any xtset settings with your data type xtset, clear.

      You may look at examples in manuls of -spbalance-. Either use -spbalance, balance- to drop some unbalanced time periods, or balancing by dropping spatial units.

      I do not think it is good idea to create new ids in your case. It means different ids actually point to the same spatial units, so the inverse-weighting matrix will have some invalid entries as 1 divided by 0.
