1. Introduction Panel data are repeated measures on individuals ( i ) over time ( t ) . Regress y it on x it for i = 1 , ..., N and t = 1 , ..., T . Complications compared to cross-section data: 1 Inference: correct (in±ate) standard errors. This is because each additional year of data is not independent of previous years. 2 Modelling: richer models and estimation methods are possible with repeated measures. Fixed e/ects and dynamic models are examples. 3 Methodology: di/erent areas of applied statistics may apply di/erent methods to the same panel data set. A.

This talk: overview of panel data methods and xt commands for Stata 10 most commonly used by microeconometricians . Three specializations to general panel methods: 1 Short panel: data on many individual units and few time periods. Then data viewed as clustered on the individual unit. Many panel methods also apply to clustered data such as cross-section individual-level surveys clustered at the village level. 2 Causation from observational data : use repeated measures to estimate key marginal e/ects that are causative rather than mere correlation. Fixed e/ects: assume time-invariant individual-speci²c e/ects. IV: use data from other periods as instruments. 3 Dynamic models: regressors include lagged dependent variables. A.

2.1 Some basic considerations 1 Regular time intervals assumed. 2 Unbalanced panel okay (xt commands handle unbalanced data). [Should then rule out selection/attrition bias]. 3 Short panel assumed, with T small and N ! . [Versus long panels, with T ! and N small or N ! .] 4 Errors are correlated.

    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.
