```Many many thanks for your help,
I know that the R^2 is not a parameter on which value my regression but
this is first time I run a xtreg , fe and so I don't how value that.
These are two example of my xtreg output.
According to you , in the fixed models is possible interpret the fixed effect
as a component of the intercept and so calculate the R^2 as a corr(Xb +
u_i , y)^2???
Every help will be welcome and make me happy.
