I am not sure what you are looking for: - Do you want to get access to the estimates of sigma_e and sigma_u after you have estimated your model with -xtreg-? The answer is discussed in: M.L. Buis (2011) "Stata tip 97: Getting at rhos and sigmas", The Stata Journal, 11(2), pp. 315-317. - Do you want to know how Stata estimated these coefficients? The answer is maximum likelihood Hope this helps, Maarten -------------------------- Maarten L.
