Dear Tom,
Thank you very much for the reassuring answer.

Regarding the omitted Kaduna state dummy. Is there anything I can do to change that? Kaduna is part of my BH treatment group (BH=1) while Sokoto is not (BH=0) so if Stata groups them this would work against the overall specification of my treatment groups somehow - I hope this makes sense.

With regard to the northeastern region you mean that instead of comparing the affected states to the non/less-affected states in Nigeria I run an usual OLS regression on the BH affected states only - so make use of the attacknumber as a typical continous independent variable similar to education years and only analyze the effects of an additional attack on my dependent variables in the conflict region?

Thank you very much in advance.
