Subject   st: Literature Reference for Stata's Fixed-Effects Transformation
Date   Mon, 23 Aug 2010 18:06:05 +0200

Dear Stata Users: 

When Stata performs a fixed-effects estimation with the command "xtreg, fe",
it transforms the variables by subtracting the individual mean and adding
the grand mean back in. This way, a model constant is obtained. There can be
problems with the estimation of the constant, but I consider it useful. 

This within-transformation is explained in the Stata manual and in some
Stata-specific books, for example in Cameron and Trivedi's
"Microeconometrics Using Stata". 

However, I am looking for a reference outside the Stata-specific literature.
It does not matter whether it is a textbook or an article or something
similar. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

Sincerely 
Sebastian van Baal
Cologne, Germany
