Thank you for your comments!

This is how i think of it: Fixed-effects are equivalent to n entity-specific dummies, in effect allowing for varying intercepts across regions.

A mixed effect (random intercept) model allows for the region-specific intercepts to vary from one wave/panel to the other (instead of assuming that entity-specific intercepts are constant over time).

Is this the correct intuition?? I hope it is!

Truly yours,

DD
