RE: st: RE: Panel Data Problem
Is that a question or an answer?
I'll in turn give an answer that is
really a question.
As one gets into more and more elaborate imputation
of missing data, what then is the status
of any model later fitted to the data?
I am reminded of those stories of naive
students rediscovering the very relationships
used to fill in the gaps in scrappy data by
economists working for international organisations.
