Please read carefully the Chapters in the book on Panel Data. The big picture: we are interested in the causal e/ect of X on Y. Suppose we have the following model: Y st = ° + ±X st + " st (1) 1

± is the causal e/ect if E [ " sj j X st ] = 0 for all j and t , or that X is "strictly exogenous" : For example, if we are trying to estimate the e/ects of welfare programs on labor supply across states and years, or the e/ects of immigration on natives°wages, or the e/ect of cigarette prices on cigarette consumption, we may think that there are some permanent di/erences across states. Regression (1) is comparing Alabama and California, and similarly across states. In the same way, if we have data for 1990 and 2000, regression (1) is comparing Alabama in 1990 with California in 2000. Does this make sense?

### 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.
