Andrea,-----Original Message-----From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu[mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On BehalfOfAndrea MorescalchiSent: Tuesday, April 12, 2011 9:57 AM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: Re: st: Fixed Effects GLS Dear Ada and Maysa,I was trying too to estimate the FEGLS as presented inWooldridge (2002), but with only one error component.Anyway, I cannot understand properly the first line ofAda's response: "Fixed Effects model is a kind of GLSmodel. Use the basic FE commands and you will be fine."I red carefully the Chapter 10 in Wooldridge, but Icannotsee among the - xtreg, FE - options available which isthat for doing FEGLS. In particular, the optionsavailablefor vce are: conventional, robust, cluster, bootstrap,orjackknife.FEGLS implies a particular structure for the (T-1)*(T-1)covariance matrix for the errors, i.e. the matrix isestimated after a standard FE in the first step wherethismatrix is an identity matrix multiplicated for theT-constant variance parameter.Among FE Stata options the most proper to do FEGLS wouldseem: "vce(conventional), the default, uses theconventionally derived variance estimator forgeneralizedleast squares regression". This line is a bit strange tome since it seems to imply that the standard FE Stataregression is actually a FEGLS!It is indeed, and not just in Stata. The FE estimatoris, bydefinition, a GLS estimator.I am sure this is discussed in Jeff Wooldridge's booksomewhere (there'sa 2010 edition out, by the way), but I don't have ithandy and can'tdirect you to the right chapter/page. Another place youmight look isArellano's 2003 book, "Panel Data Econometrics". Inchapter 2 (I think)he shows that the FE estimator is the GLS estimatorobtained afterapplying the first-differencing transformation. --MarkI computed the FE and theFEGLS separately in Matlab and it turns out that the"conventional" Stata FE is identical to that with errorv-c matrix equal to an identity matrix (multiplicatedforsigma_u). But which is the option which tells Stata toestimate the v-c matrix in the first step?Thanks in advance Andrea On Tue, 12 Apr 2011 00:09:11 +0000 "Ada Ma" <heu034@googlemail.com> wrote:>Fixed Effects model is a kind of GLS model.
