As Scott Merryman clearly suggested, -xtreg- can only estimate one-way *random* effect models, with either time or cross-section heterogeneity. -xtmixed-, however, can easily estimate the two-way random effect panel data model. As explained in [Baltagi (2005), Econometric analysis of panel data, ch. 3] there are various ways to estimate the two-way random effect model in econometrics. Using the Grunfeld's data set <http://www.wiley.com/legacy/wileychi/baltagi3e/data_sets.html> the following -xtmixed- instruction produces estimates for parameters and standard deviations that are identical to those reported in Baltagi's (2005) Table 3.1 under the IMLE (iterated maximum likelihood estimator) method, implemented by Baltagi using TSP (FN=firm index; YR=time index; I=investments; F=value of the firm; K=capital stock): . xtmixed I F K || _all: R.FN || _all: R.YR,mle Performing EM optimization: Performing gradient-based optimization: Iteration 0: log likelihood = -1095.3809 Iteration 1: log likelihood = -1095.2502 Iteration 2: log likelihood = -1095.2485 Iteration 3: log likelihood = -1095.2485 Computing standard errors: Mixed-effects ML regression Number of obs = 200 Group variable: _all Number of groups = 1 Obs per group: min = 200 avg = 200.0 max = 200 Wald chi2(2) = 661.07 Log likelihood = -1095.2485 Prob > chi2 = 0.0000 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I | Coef.
