Maybe this question has been asked before or it's very trivial, but
it's been a real nightmare to me to try to find out the answer!
I am performing an estimation of a migration equation using
xtreg y x1...xn, re i(id_obs) robust cluster(id_obs)
My question is:
how does STATA calculates the degrees of freedom of the Wald Chi2
test? I have a lot of observations (more than 30000), around 2000

The more regressors I use, the more dof the model seems to have, and I

Any suggestions will be great!

Thanks in advance,
