Thank you very much Nick. I wasn't aware of the protocol about explaining where I got the program from. I obtained it from Thomas Plumper's web pages, http://www.polsci.org/pluemper/ssc.html Your observation about the method is spot on, and you were indeed very polite. I nevertheless wanted to produce results by using the method and make comparisons. I can get it work with a different data set and a model. So, your comment 4) suggests that this particular problem is related to the memory available on my computer. Thanks again.

It is not even found by -findit-. Either way, you are asked to explain where user-written programs you refer to come from. I don't think the authors of -xtfevd- are members of Statalist, so I doubt that you will get good support on it through Statalist. Incidentally, a Google for fixed effects vector decomposition will yield references to discussion papers maintaining that this method has been oversold, to put it fairly politely. I can't adjudicate on this -- I've not even read the papers -- but my impression is that the critics are weightier authorities than the proponents. (I are aware from argument from authority is often regarded as a fallacy, but it's what I have here.) That aside, Mata can't find a way to allocate a matrix that is [6168, 6168]. Deeper diagnosis of that problem may depend on some combination of (1) the details of -xtfevd- (2) the details of your dataset and what this command implies (3) the memory available on your computer (4) the flavour of your Stata. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Murat Genc I am getting the following error message when I try to do an estimation by using xtfevd. I've never seen this message before, so I don't know what to do. Can anyone suggest something?
