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
