I remember within estimator is surely serially correlated. Anyway, this estimator is still consistent, even if it is not efficient. That's why the coefficient estimated with your transofrmation 1 and 2 are numerically identical, but I suppose your standard errors are different in the 2 transformations Enrico. ______________________________ Enrico Pellizzoni Borsa Italiana Spa Research & Development Piazza Affari, 6 - 20123 Milano Tel: 02 72426 304 Fax: 02 86464323 E-mail: enrico.pellizzoni@borsaitalia.it Eddy <eddy_05831@yahoo.com> To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Sent by: cc: owner-statalist@hsphsun2. Subject: st: panel within transformation cause serial correlation? harvard.edu 12/12/2003 15.53 Please respond to statalist Dear listers, In a typical panel data model with individual fixed effect, we have y_{it} = a_i + B*X + e_{it}, --- (1) where a_i is individual effect. Assume e_{it} is iid distributed for i and t. A standard estimation procedure is to first do the "within" transformation to get rid of the potentially large number of the a_i dummies. The transformation essentially subtracts the group means from the variables: y_{it} -y_{i.} = B*(X_{it}-X_{i.}) + (e_{it}-e_{i.}), -- (2) where e_{i.} = (1/T) *(e_{i1} + e_{i2} + ... + e_{iT}). It can be shown numerically that OLS estimations on models (1) and (2) give you exactly the same results. My question is: In model (2), the transformed error term (e_{it}-e_{i.}) seems to be serially correlated within any given individual (i.e., for any i), but the OLS estimation assumes no correlation. Thus, how come the serial correlation can be ignored in estimating (2), and the results are still the same as (1)? To be more clear, consider the transformed error terms of individual i in period t and t-1. They are (e_{it}-e{i.}) = e_{it} - (1/T) *(e_{i1} + e_{i2} + ... + e_{iT}) (e_{it-1}-e{i.}) = e_{it-1} - (1/T) *(e_{i1} + e_{i2} + ... + e_{iT}) . I think they are correlated because of the common term on the RHS of the expressions. Any insight will be appreciated. --Eddy __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? New Yahoo!
