Hi!
1) Could anybody tell me what does the constant implies in fixed
effect result in Stata. Because in fixed effect regression the
constant terms should ideally get deleted.
2) Further, I would like to get deviation of the dependent variable
from its individual (id) mean. so i used the following command:

xtreg depent variable , fe

But when I checked the residual it is a constant for each group . Why
is it so? and how to interpret the residual. Also how to get the
desired deviation.
Thanks
Mukta
