Mark, thanks for your answer. The problem is the following. I want to know if the best estimation is a fixed or a random effects. So I use the Hausman test: xtreg y x, fe hausman, save xtreg y x, re hausman I want to run three versions of models, and they have more or less the same variables. In the first two, the p-value of Hausman is 0.0000, so I use xtreg, fe. However, when I run the third model, the HAusman statistic is negative. I have read that this means that with my sample, I have no evidence to reject the null, so I would have to make a random effects for this third model. However, for me is strange the result on the third model (random effect), since more or less the variables are the same ones than in the first two models, and the population is, of course, the same. So I would like to test the hypothesis of random effects by means of other command, like suest. Thank you in advance.
