Dear all, If i'm not wrong, the -xtgls- does only available for random effects. I guess i do get what you mean Andrea that you want to get an estimate of what you mentioned " the (T-1)*(T-1) covariance matrix of the error component is not an identity matrix (multiplicated for sigma) but it is estimated in a first stage" Then i guess... there might not be an option for FE-GLS as what you might want to do in STATA? Am i right here? Maysa, On Tue, Apr 12, 2011 at 1:27 PM, Andrea Morescalchi <morescalchi@ec.unipi.it> wrote: > Thank you vey much Mark.
