I don't have time to look at the details now, but as a suggestion perhaps could check the latter sections of Chapter 2 in Paul Allison's "Fixed Effects" SAS book regarding the centered score model with random effects, perhaps running the resulting dataset with HPMIXED instead of MIXED.

Dear SAS list,

Many thanks for your suggestions... However it seems to me that these procedures you suggested (proc Mixed or proc Surveyreg) allow indeed to cluster the standard errors by individuals but do not absorb the individual dummies during the computation... My problem is that my PC cannot handle the creation of these dummies (too many) and I should use the de-mean mathematical trick to remove them from the estimation of the fixed effects (not random effect) linear model Are you eventually aware of any procedure to do that ? again, the Stata counterpart would be areg Y X, absorb(id) vce(cluster id) OR or xtreg Y X, fe vce(cluster (id))

Many, many thanks again
