I am not sure what you did with the xtreg command, but the model
looks to me as spatial competition, you have 20 regions that compite
for the people. In your case I will take a look of that literature before
to move on something on heteroskedasticity of the current model.

For the same reason above, you could re-post the question changing
the subject to spatial, with that you have more chances to receive
feedback from other users that work with that field.
