It might be useful to do a variance decomposition to see how much of the variance is due to the cross-sectional dimension and how much is due to the time dimension. If much of the variance comes from the cross-sectional dimension, you could use the between estimator or simply pooled OLS with clustered standard errors.

What if they are not? In my hypothetic case, for example, for both unit 1 and 2, we can't see relationship between x and y if we only consider within-variation. But this conceals the fact that Y takes higher value in unit 2 when 2 takes higher value in unit 2. That is, we do see a relationship that higher x causes y. so, if FE a bad choice if we have a large between variation compared to within variation in the data? thanks * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
