Dear Maarten Thanks again. I think I was unable to explain my problem. My data is on 3 year surveys (6 waves) for 15 countries covering near 1000 from each country in each wave. As in each wave of survey, an independent sample is drawn from each country, it is not true panel data (respondents are not same in each wave) and it is repeated cross sections over time or pseudo panel data. So its not possible to apply the normal panel data techniques on this data. My dependent variable is binary so I'll use logistic regression. For this I 'm following the method described in Gassner, Katharina, 1998. "An estimation of UK telephone access demand using Pseudo-Panel data," Utilities Policy, Elsevier, vol. 7(3), pages 143-154, November." He described the method as below: "Suppose that yit is a 0–1 variable indicating whether a household has access to a telephone or not, and that this indicator variable is a linear function of explanatory variables. We acknowledge this being an unusual assumption as in reality it is not possible for a 0–1 indicator to be a linear function of variables, since the linear function can take any value whereas the indicator is binary. However, the estimation procedure which we have adopted involves subsequent aggregation of the individual data. We removed yit to be linear in the explanatory variables in order for the aggregation to give a relation between the share of 1’s and the average of the explanatory variables." Thats why I wrote a linear function and asked for how to make a cohort data according to that.
