Re: st: Fama-MacBeth regressions |

This sounds like a multilevel model to me. I don't know the method at all as proposed by Fama and MacBeth (can you provide a reference? I know Fama is famous in finance, but I am not sure he is equally famous in statistics...), but it seems to me that plugging the regression coefficient estimates as the real time series observations will at least give wrong standard errors. (Don't tell me you are going to use the bootstrap to correct them. Just don't get me started...) I would advocate constructing an appropriate two-level model and estimate it with -gllamm-; that would be the closest analog of SAS' PROC MIXED, if that's what you had in mind there. See http://www.gllamm.org, GLVM book from Stata, and examples at http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/examples/mlm_ma_hox/. Before saying that Fama-MacBeth is the de-facto method, remember that you may become a founder of a new methodology, so that people in business would refer to it as Edmans model :)) Stas On Tue, 12 Oct 2004 10:02:42 -0400, Alex Edmans <aedmans@mit.edu> wrote: > Dear all, > > I'm relatively new to Stata; although I can run standard regressions without > any problem, I am not sure how to run a Fama-MacBeth regression (where you > run cross-sections at different points in time, e.g. for 20 different years > between 1980 and 2000, and then take the coefficients and treat these as a > time series).
