Dear all, Thank you for your suggestions. I tried based on your advise and find xtreg and xi: reg i. are the same, in terms of estimate and SE but may differ in R squred and others. Regarding the firm-year interaction dummy, I thought that over again, and I think indeed it is capturing a little different fixed effect, allowing each firm-year combination has an a different intercept and no relation between different intercepts. And also, if there is no variation within a firm-year combination, then the model cannot be estimated. I tried a2reg but it seems weird..Please correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks!
