The Hausman test for fixed vs random is only valid under a strict set of assumptions. These assumptions are clearly not satisfied in your case . Use -xtoverid-. Download it from ssc: -ssc install xtoverid- and read the help file first.

I have run a panel data regression and selection of the random effects or fixed effects using Hausman test. I do not know what is the actual problem with my results. Please could someone help. Why the result for my hausman command results in warning message? the complete results are below: . xtreg priceclose eps bookvalue, fe Fixed-effects (within) regression Number of obs = 850 Group variable: id Number of groups = 170 R-sq: within = 0.1160 Obs per group: min = 5 between = 0.5266 avg = 5.0 overall = 0.4645 max = 5 F(2,678) = 44.48 corr(u_i, Xb) = 0.4836 Prob > F = 0.0000 priceclose Coef.
