Thank you for your time Have a look at the help file for xtoverid - there's a longish paragraph discussing the interpretation of a fixed-vs-random effects test as an overid test. One way to anwer your question is the standard FE-vs-RE formulation: the null is the same null as the standard Hausman fixed vs. random effects, i.e., both estimators are consistent. Rejection of the null is then interpreted to mean that the random effects estimator is not consistent. Another way to put it (and why it's an overid test) is that the random effects estimator uses more orthogonality conditions than the fixed effects estimator; namely, that the group means are uncorrelated with the idiosyncratic error e_ij. These extra orthogonality conditions are responsible for the increased efficiency of the random effects estimator vs the fixed effects estimator. However, the extra orthogonality conditions might not be valid. The null is that they are valid, and rejection of the null suggests that they are not (and hence the random effects estimator that uses them is inconsistent). Hope this helps.
