hello,

I have this warning. How can I resolve the problem?

WARNING: The covariance across equations (the S matrix) is singular. A generalized inverse was

Not sure, what type of analysis is this, but most likely this is a problem of multicollinearity.

It is exact collinearity, in that one of the variables is a linear combination of some the others.  That is why a generalized inverse is used.  You have two choices--accept the GI approach (my preference) or reparameterize your model.

Hi Steve,

I also got a similar message as the other member (SASPHD) above.

Can you kindly provide a syntax on how to correct for singularity using the IV approach in a source-differentiated AIDS model?

Thanks.

Patrick
