Intended for

 

Empirical researchers with an interest in panel data analysis.

Prerequisites

 

Advanced econometrics for undergraduates. The required prerequisite knowledge of econometrics is at the level of W. H. Greene’s textbook Econometric Analysis, 6th edition, 2008, Prentice- Hall; or J. M. Wooldridge’s textbook Introductory Econometrics: A Modern Approach, 2002, South-Western. In particular, participants are expected to be familiar with such concepts as linear regression, two-stage least squares, and autoregressive models.

Overview

 

The purpose of this course is to provide an up-to-date coverage of the main methods and models used in the econometric analysis of panel data, with particular focus on panels where the cross-sectional dimension is large and the time-series dimension is short. The course will cover applications to production functions, investment models, empirical growth models, and the implementation of panel GMM estimators using Stata (xtabond2).

Topics

 

Static Models. Unobserved heterogeneity. Within-groups estimation. Error components GLS. Specification tests
Dynamic Models. Autoregressive models with individual effects. Identification and unit roots. Strictly exogenous, predetermined and endogenous explanatory variables. Initial conditions restrictions. Specification tests
Applications. Cobb-Douglas production functions. Investment models. Empirical growth models
Networks and social influences. The role of networks and social influences in magnifying bubbles and crises
Implementation. Panel data analysis using Stata. The xtabond and xtabond2 commands
