I'm trying to estimate a panel with random effects where the dependent variable depends on time and id; and the independent variable depends only on id. However, the results that I'm getting are exactly the same as OLS and I'm not sure how to interpret this.

Thank you!

    $\begingroup$ If independent variable depends only on ID there is no temporal variation in in it so if dependent variable is for example provided for years 2001 and 2002 but independent variable only in year 2001 the model will only regress y from 2001 on x from 2001. They year 2002 would simply be dropped as there are no corresponding independent variables. Furthermore, I think there might be other mistakes. You tagged this with Stata I think if I remember correctly Stata would tell you this is a problem I mostly use R and Python but also have experience with Stata. You should consider providing MWE $\endgroup$
