Notation for Econometrics For Econ 570, I will try to use the following notation consistently. ( Time subscripts are used only when dealing with time - series or panel data. ) N Total number of observations in the sample T Total number of time periods in the sample K Total number of explanatory variables in the model i or j Indexes a specific ( but generic ) observation t or s Indexes a specific ( but generic ) time period k or ! Indexes a specific ( but generic ) explanatory variable y i The value of the dependent variable for individual i ( or y it for the value for i at time t ) x ki The value of explanatory variable k for individual i ( or x kit for the value for i at time t ) e i The value of the unobservable determinants of the outcome y i ( or e it for the unobservable determinants of y it ) Y A vector containing all the
