I am estimating a fixed effects model with the command xtreg
and every time I estimate, exactly the SAME model, I get
different estimation results: different coefficients,
and different levels of significance. Variables change the
level of significance from being non sig to being significant at 10%
to being significant at 5%!
I don't see how or why this may happen.

This is the command I am writting:

xtreg ltheil2ie lunemp lreedu lrprim lrsup lelectricity lelectricitysq
ldepindex lshare2 if (year>1997),fe;

(all variables are in logs)

Do I need to set any "start" value or sth like that so that
every time I run the fixed effects model I get the same results?

Please, if someone has a hint on this, I would really appreciate it,
Santos, Maria Emma
