thanks!! I ran the hausman after log transformation, hausman fix6 random6 ---- Coefficients ---- | (b) (B) (b-B) sqrt(diag(V_b-V_B)) | fix6 random6 Difference S.E. -------------+---------------------------------------------------------------- logPenetra~2 | .0867588 -.4900428 .5768016 .0213524 logGastosS~a | .00316 -.0937751 .096935 . logMortHom~b | .0033615 .0204816 -.01712 . loginterin~a | -.0596365 .5041358 -.5637723 .0428176 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ b = consistent under Ho and Ha; obtained from xtreg B = inconsistent under Ha, efficient under Ho; obtained from xtreg Test: Ho: difference in coefficients not systematic chi2(4) = (b-B)'[(V_b-V_B)^(-1)](b-B) = 158.35 Prob>chi2 = 0.0000 (V_b-V_B is not positive definite) and from the output it looks like i should stay with the fixed effects. As Kit suggest i am reviewing the fixed effects model. What i am trying to test is the role of insurance (penetration) on entrepreneurship (depvar) The variable loginterins is interaction between insurance and finance and there is endogeneity. thanks Pietro ---------------------------------------- > From: kit.baum@bc.edu > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Subject: Re: st: RE: panel data fixed vs random > Date: Mon, 4 Feb 2013 12:21:46 +0000 > > <> > On Feb 4, 2013, at 2:33 AM, Pietro said: > > > If i run the hausman test in the reverse order: > > > > hausman random fix > > > > 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.

You cannot arbitrarily reverse the order of arguments to -hausman-. As the footer says, you > have specified that the first set of estimates is always consistent, i.e. FE, not RE.
