Please, look at the FAQ for completely determined observations for -logit-
(it also applies to completely determined panels for -xtlogit-):
Regarding rho and sigma:
- rho is obtained as: rho = (sigma_u)^2 / ((sigma_u)^2 + (sigma_e)^2)
Where sigma_u and sigma_e correspond to the unobserved individual
specific component and the idiosyncratic component of the error term:
error = u_i + e_i_t
(See page 135 of the cross-sectional time-series manual for details)
- sigma_u, is the standard deviation of the random effect term, which
measures the degree of heterogeneity in u_i
