Hello all,

I understand that we can use the ---hausman--- after ---xtlogit--- for testing fe vs. re specifications.

Here is my problem: 

* panelid: zip code
* time: year  (2005-2011)

* for most zip codes, the binary dependent variable is always zero.

* ----xtlogit, fe----- excludes all units where there is no variation in the dependent variable.  

The FE model runs with 1,700 observations vs. 22,000 observations for RE model.

Is the use of ---hausman--- appropriate here?  As a note, the test runs and rejects the default null hypothesis.
