Dear GRETL folk, greetings from Paris !
I am still on my demand system analysis and AIDS modelling.
This project involves regressions in on large cross-sections (~ 10 000
observations) on households. Meanwhile, to control for heterogeneity, I use
numerous lists of qualitative variables, each on different themes like:
location in the hexagon
those lists are often composed of contiguous variables names, as for example:
x1 x2 x3 x4 x5
As often in such work one likes to account for lots of attributes, so one
needs to create long lists. In a famous paper by Blundell, Pashardes and
Weber, 1993, there are around 150 such variables.
My problem is that I cant find in the doc a way to call / create lists with
contiguous variables without enumerating all the variables names. So, is it
possible to call a list with something like:
list housing = x1 to x5 x13
list housing = x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 x13
thanks for any advice !
