Following Baltagi (2008) the best way to test for the existence of fixed effects in a two-way error component model is the following:





H0: mu(1) = ... = mu(N-1) = 0  and  lambda(1) = ... = lambda(T-1) = 0


where mu(n) represents betas of sectors and lambda(t) betas of time.





Then you can run the following F-test





F = ((RSS - URSS)/(N+T-2))/(URSS/(N-1)(T-1)-K) dist as F (N+T-2),(N-1)(T-1) -K





where RRSS is the restricted residual sums of squares obtained from pooled OLS and URSS is the unrestricted residual sums of squares obtained from the Within regression.





If you want to add more precision to your test you can run other F-test, i.e.





H0: mu(1) = ... = mu(N-1) = 0  and  lambda != 0





Hope this helps.
