Hi Mark, Thank you very much for your response. I have seen these previous discussions and have a good idea why it happens in Stata. But what still bothers me is the different outcomes from Stata and Limdep. In Limdep, I can get a reasonable RE estimation result with Sigma_u > 0. Is it because the algorithm behind these two packages are different? If so, may I use the RE estimation results from Limdep and compare it with other estimators in Stata? Many thanks for your advise.
