short answer - yes.

Longer answer : as long as there are repeaed observations on the same unit - the unit could be time, state, district, household, .... xtreg will be happy to throw in fixed effects for that unit and you will be all set.

cheerio,

Dear Stata list,

A colleague of mine is working with cross sectional data and has used the following xtreg command :

-xtreg weightage chvar , fe i(caseid)robust cluster(caseid)-

I looked up xtreg and found that it is used with cross sectional time series data.

Is it possible to use -xtreg-with cross sectional data?


Regards,

Gauri
