That did the trick... Careful! This is the right thing to do only if you were doing it backwards (=wrongly) to begin with. Stata needs to know which is the efficient model and which is the inefficient-but-consistent model. Reversing the order is equivalent to telling it to switch them around, but if the order is backwards then you have a useless (=wrong) test statistic. The root of the problem is that to guarantee a positive test statistic, you need to use the same estimate of the error variance throughout the calculation - either the random effects estimate or the fixed effects estimate. Stata's -hausman- command lets you do this with the -sigmamore- or -sigmaless- options, but the last time I checked, xtreg doesn't leave the right information in the estimation results that would enable these options to work. Without these options, you get a statistic that is still asymptotically correct, but prone to occasional misbehaviour in finite samples. I don't know about getting suest to work with panels. Your other option is to run the test using the artificial regression approach. This is guaranteed to generate a positive test statistic - I think Davidson and MacKinnon (1993) describe how to do it.
