Hi Mohammed,
thanks for your response. However, the discussion you referred does not explain that if there is any test to find out which method to use ?

I don't think it is a matter or running a test; it is a matter of which is appropriate given the nature of your problem. The help for areg says "areg is designed for datasets with many groups, but not a number of groups that increases with the sample size."
