Panel Data and Individual Effects Panel Data Sets * Longitudinal data – ‘short panels’ National longitudinal survey of youth (NLS) British household panel survey (BHPS) Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) Cross section time series – ‘long panels’ Grunfeld’s investment data Penn world tables Financial data by firm, year – ‘huge panels’ r it – r ft = β i (r mt - r ft ) + ε it , i = 1,…,many; t=1,…many Exchange rate data, essentially infinite T, large N Effects: β i = β + v i * See Baltagi, Chapter 1 Panel Data Rotating panels: Spanish household survey Spanish income/savings study Efficiency analysis: “Efficiency measurement in rotating panel data,” Heshmati, A, Applied Economics , 30, 1998, pp. 919-930 Pseudo panel: Time series of (different) cross sections. E.g., Yearly UK Family Expenditure Survey; 7,000+ different households. What can we learn from these?
