st: fixed effects and random effects
I have a couple of questions:
One, when I run a random effects model on my data, I
get sigma_u =0. How do I interpret this? Does it mean
that the random effects model is not appropriate for
this data? The fixed effect model seems to work fine.
Two, I have an unbalanced panel data in which the
number of observations per firm ranges from 1 to 60.
Would this lead to any bias in my fixed effects
estimates, especially since some firms have only 1
observation? If so, how do I get around the problem?
Do you Yahoo!?
