Thanks David, thanks Clive, I give more information : My data : units are countries, my T runs from 1955 to 2006 (52 years), data is balanced, response variable is normally distributed. Here my results : . xtgls y x1 x2 new_* if obs>1954,p(h) corr(ar1) note: new_pays_14 dropped due to collinearity Cross-sectional time-series FGLS regression Coefficients: generalized least squares Panels: heteroskedastic Correlation: common AR(1) coefficient for all panels (0.9210) Estimated covariances = 14 Number of obs = 728 Estimated autocorrelations = 1 Number of groups = 14 Estimated coefficients = 16 Time periods = 52 Wald chi2(15) = 4919.00 Log likelihood = 952.8368 Prob > chi2 = 0.0000 y Coef.

My theoretical economical question is X2 is or is not explicative of Y ? So if i take one model i have one answer if i take the other i have an other one, i have to choose very carrefully. Clive said " Much depends on how much contemporaneous correlation of the errors there is in your data. If you have lots, and T > N by a factor of 3 or more (which you have), then FGLS estimates should be okay. If you don't have much by way of CCEs, then OLS-PCSE is to be preferred" I don't how to know if there is a lots or a few CCE ? Can you help me Thanks Ghislain Clive Nicholas a écrit : > Ghislain Dutheil replied: > > >> the two model give results quite different : in one case (FGLS) an >> explonary variable is significative in the other, PCSE, it is not, and i >> have only two explonary variables... so the difference is sensible .
