I am running a GMM with 12 timepoints and I have two brief questions.
1. If a variable is in the usevariables list, but is not included anywhere else in the model, how does it impact the model?

2. If a variable is in an on statement with the class or with the intercept and trend variables, how does it impact the model? Would this be considered a time invariate covariate?

For example:
c1 ON gender;
i s q ON gender;

Thank you.

1. Any variable on the USEVARIABLES list is used in model estimation whether it is mentioned in the MODEL command or not.

2. Yes, gender is a time-invariant covariate.
