Thanks Michael. I'm still not sure how this would let me compare among hospitals, or idcodes, because how do I know which residuals are significantly different from the rest. I found another reference that I think is similar to your approach, it talks about a LSDV (least squares dummy reg) for comparing the other dummies to the mean group effect. http://www.masil.org/documents/dummy.pdf However, it mentions that there is no straightforward way to run this model in Stata (only in SAS, limdep, R, or others). It suggests that you can use something like xtreg dv iv, fe i(groupvar) but I'm not sure if this is appropriate for my model. If I run this on the data example you gave me, it gives me slightly larger residuals but once again, I'm not sure how to translate that into a comparison of the higher vs. lower than predicted hospitals?
