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

One definition of Rho (I am not sure if Stata uses this definition) is : (MSb - MSw)/((MSb + (k-1)*MSw)) Where, k is the average group size; MS=mean square; b=between; w=within.

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 andmy theory predicts a lot of variation between my subjects.Could there by any mistake in the analysis?Thanks,PatHere's the STATA output:Random-effects GLS regression Number of obs = 545 Group variable: number Number of groups = 64 R-sq: within = 0.0138 Obs per group: min = 2 between = 0.1741 avg = 8.5 overall = 0.0168 max = 10 Random effects u_i ~ Gaussian Wald chi2(7) = 9.16 corr(u_i, X) = 0 (assumed) Prob > chi2 = 0.2416 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ AverCh~2adj2 | Coef.
