Much of the panel data literature assumes a large cross sectional aspect, and a short time period (i.e. N>>T)

Now, if you wish to see the effect of various covariates, you may want to use a random effects model, although this is only consistent under very strict assumptions.

A possible other solution is using the arrellano bond difference gmm, or a system gmm method of estimation....
