Hint: You have an "average" of 3.74 observations per pid.
The number of observations per person varies.

Hello Statlist Contributors!

I have a panel data on xlist which includes time variant and invariant
predictors. I need to know what causes my year vairable to show
between variations. My question is should or should not, the time
variable to show between variation in panel data. If not then how can
I interprete the following results.

Variable         |      Mean   Std. Dev.       Min        Max |    Observations
-----------------+--------------------------------------------+----------------
pid      overall |  6.85e+07   4.74e+07   1.00e+07   1.89e+08 |     N =   25173
          between |             4.92e+07   1.00e+07   1.89e+08 |     n =    6730
          within  |                    0   6.85e+07   6.85e+07 | T-bar = 3.74042
