Chao Wang <>:
Number of decelerations over some time interval (e.g. last 10 days) is
a cross-sectional summary of a longitudinal series, so you have a
cross-sectional design where you can use many lags and differences of
X as predictors of current Y.  A "wide" dataset in the sense of
-reshape- might aid you in identifying clusters of predictors but a
"long" dataset will be easier for most computations, and for graphing
trajectories of X.

I am doing study on fetal heart rate analysis, and I would like to model the effect of patients' heart rate patterns during labour such as the number of decelerations (measured at 15min interval, so longitudinal/panel) on fetal health (measured by the arterial pH value at birth, so cross-sectional). Traditional panel data models seem require the dependent and explanatory variables to be in the same form (i.e. both panel). However in my study the dependent variable (i.e. the labour outcome for patient i) is only measured once.
