An alternative is to calculate mean-deviations and group-specific means for each time-varying covariate, run your -rologit- model with all of them and then use -testparm- to conduct an F test for the additional variables. If F is significant, you retain the fixed effects in your model, which is surely what the Hausman test is there for.

I am using the rank ordered logistic regression. When I run the
Hausman test I get the following message"V_b-V_B is not positive
definite" in some cases and a negative Chi-Square “model fitted on
these data fails to meet the asymptotic assumptions of the Hausman
test” in another. The suest test is recommended, but this cannot be
used with rologit. How I solve this problem?

Best regards
