SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS PRACTICE PROBLEMS PAM 305 FALL 2006 13.3 We do not have repeated observations on the same cross-sectional units in each time period, and so it makes no sense to look for pairs to difference. For example, in Example 13.1, it is very unlikely that the same woman appears in more than one year, as new random samples are obtained in each year. In Example 13.3, some houses may appear in the sample for both 1978 and 1981, but the overlap is usually too small to do a true panel data analysis. 13.5 No, we cannot include age as an explanatory variable in the original model. Each person in the panel data set is exactly two years older on January 31, 1992 than on January 31, 1990. This means that age i = 2 for all i . But the equation we would estimate is of the form Δ saving i = δ 0 + β 1 Δ age i + , where δ 0 is the coefficient the year dummy for 1992 in the original model. As we know, when we have an intercept in the model we cannot include an explanatory variable that is constant across i; this violates Assumption MLR.3. Intuitively, since age changes by the

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
