In Stata, what is the command I should use to test if fixed effects are needed in my panel data regression?

The output to test for redundant fixed effects should be

Cross-section F-Test

Cross-section Chi-square

But I don't know what command to use.

Thank you

  • $\begingroup$ I answered this question yesterday (stats.stackexchange.com/questions/144965/…). My answer should have provided you with enough direction on how to search (e.g. in Google) for the command you need. Your asking the question a second time suggests you did not put in any effort to search Google. I can guarantee that if you searched for fixed effects tests in Stata in Google, you will find what you need $\endgroup$ Apr 7, 2015 at 4:04

  • $\begingroup$ I only found a Chow test, which uses test after doing the reg, but this only gives a F-Stat $\endgroup$
