Rafa, Thanks for that, I guess interpreting the constant as my missing fixed effect is the most sensible thing to do. This may be a basic question, but what I (still!) find puzzling is that using the commands: (a) xi: regress depvar varlist indivdummies timedummies and (b) xi: xtreg depvar varlist i.indiv i.time I get the same fixed effects (which may be somewhat logical) but also the same estimated coefficients for varlist, which I don't find that logical... I'd expected to have different effects (at least on varlist), given that the means are subtracted. Does anyone know why this may be? Thanks very much! Andrea Quoting "R.E.
