st: Re: Estimating random effects that vary over time and cross-sections with Panel Data |

specification y_[it] = x_[it]*a_[it]+ w_[it]*b_[it]+ e_[it] where i=cross sectional units (Banks) and t=time(Quarter). And x_[it] are the co-variates and the error term e_[it] is assumed to follow a Gaussian distribution. I have 45 time periods, 21 cross-sectional units and about 669 observations since this is an unbalanced panel. My first question: Is it correct, that in using -gllamm- to estimate the above model I should do the following: Step 1-Define an equation "slope" for co-variates that vary over cross-sections (banks) and time (quarters) Step 2-Then define another equation "slope2" for the co-variates that vary only over time eq slope: x1 x2 x3 eq slope2: x4 x5 gllamm y x1 x2 x3 x4 x5, i(Quarter Bank) nrf(1,1) nip(7,7) adapt eqs(slope slope2) robust cluster(Bank) trace dots On doing this however I fail to get any kind of convergence for the maximum likelihood. Is there any suggestion on how I should go about this? The second question: if -gllamm- is not appropriate for the above model, is there a STATA command/ routine or some kind of work around that would enable me estimate random coefficients that vary over time and cross sections for unbalanced Panel data?
