0.0552 is not less than 0.05, even though 0.0052 is in this context a little deal.

I think you can equally use Breusch and Pagan Lagrangian Multiplier test for random effects to know if truly it is not okay. I think others are listening to correct us if this position is not right. > > > > > > *********************************************************************** > SOLA OLORUNFEMI Ph.D > SENIOR LECTURER > DEAPARTMENT OF ECONOMICS > ADEKUNLE AJASIN UNIVERSITY > AKUNGBA AKOKO > ONDO STATE NIGERIA > official e-mail: olorunfemi@adekunleajasinuniversity.edu.ng > TEL NO +234 803 581 0893 > > ********************************************************************** > > > ________________________________ > From: PIETRO MASCI <pete888888@msn.com> > To: statalist <statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu> > Sent: Saturday, 2 February 2013, 8:09 > Subject: st: RE: panel data fixed vs random > > Hi > > i am using a panel data and run fixed effects and stored and random effects and stored to perform the hausman test. > when i use > hausman fix random > i get the following output: > > Note: the rank of the differenced variance matrix (2) does not equal the number of coefficients > being tested (4); be sure this is what you expect, or there may be problems computing > the test.
