Thanks, Joseph. I have the text to which you refer, but I couldn't find a way to formally test it in -xtreg-, just -bootcor-.  I'll give your approach a try.

-xtreg- produces "rho" which can be interpreted as a reliability
coefficient (e.g., the intraclass correlation).  If one adds another
covariate (e.g., gender), rho is "adjusted" for gender.  Is there a way
in -xtreg- to test whether rho differs by level of the covariate?  That
is, whether the rho for males differs from the rho for females?


If I understand correctly, you can model separate residual variances and
then use a likelihood ratio test to see whether this adds anything to a
model that doesn't allow for residual variance to differ between sexes.

This can be done using -gllamm- (see S. Rabe-Hesketh and A. Skrondal,
_Multilevel and Longitudinal Modeling Using Stata_ (College Station, Texas:
Stata Press, 2005), pp. 92-94), but as far as I know not yet with -xtmixed-.
