Hi Allin,

the LSDV method in my dataset does not work because GRETL stops in the 'genr unitdum' command with 'out of memory'.
Then I have to restart GERTL in order to work further.
Ok, thanks so far. I gonna use the mentioned formula for calculation of confidence intervals in FE model.

Have a nice weekend

I want to calculate $V[\widehat{u_{ijt}}]$ for *Fixed Effect *models.
In a first step I reproduce the forecast error variance of a pooled OLS 
Using the following formula

$V[\widehat{u_{ijt}}] = V[{\epsilon}] 

which provided the same values as GRETL produces with $fcerr.
Can I apply the same calculation after the Fixed Effect?
That would, I think, ignore the uncertainty due to estimation
of the fixed effects. One option would be to estimate the
fixed effects model manually, by adding the unit dummies to
the dataset and applying OLS (gretl estimates the FE model
by de-meaning the data).
