Subject: st: random effects panel model - interpretation of rho=0


Hi,

I run a random effects panel model of 64 subjects for 10 years each and have a question concerning the results: My output tells me that 0% of the variance of the dependent variable is between subjects and 100% is within subjects (rho).

I am not sure whether I understand the interpretation correctly, but I find this result a bit uncommon given that I test for a random effects model and my theory predicts a lot of variation between my subjects. 

Could there by any mistake in the analysis?
Thanks,
Pat

Here's the STATA output:
