Dear All,

I have a cross-sectional time series data set of all countries on an annual
basis since 1981. I would like to run some cross-sectional analyses as a
test of robustness. The cross section would be all countries in a given
year. We had been using xtgls for the cross-sectional time-series models,
but were unsure if we could use this method for just cross-sections too.

Does anyone have a preferred method of estimating these cross-sections? Does
it make sense to try and control for heteroskedasticity in the
cross-sectional models?

Best wishes,

Rod
