dear problem-haver,
for this serious case of meta-humor I brought myself to comment on this post.
This is a hard question to answer generally. You could use a panel
data model, where your "time points" are the problems within each
problem solver with fixed or random problem-solver effects. The
command for this could be <xtreg score time_taken indep_vars, fe>
(with <xtset solver> before). Your data would be in sofar unbalanced
as you would have different number of problems for each solver.
Note, that having a variable that measures time does not automatically
imply, that you have a panel model over this time variable. And vice
versa, a panel data model does not need a time variable but firstly a
clustered data structure. Therefore, having time as an independent
variable, which obviously varies across problems and solvers, does not
mean, that you have an unbalanced panel data set. It is unbalanced,
because you have 4 problems for solver B and 3 problems for solver A
and C.
best

Betreff: st: panel data with irregular intervals
Good day, statalisters.
I have data of problem-solving contests.
During a contest, solvers 'irregularly' submit solutions, and then
receive scores of the solutions.
The data set of a contest is as follows:
Solver Time Score Time_Taken Independent_Var1 Independent_Var2 A
1 20 1 0.5 0.7 A 4 30
3 0.7 0.8 A 5 50 1
0.2 0.1 B 3 10 3 0.5
0.2 B 7 15 4 0.7 0.6 B
8 20 1 0.2 0.4 B 10 25
2 0.1 0.5 C 1 20 1
0.8 0.9 C 4 30 3 0.5
0.2
In my opinion, general regression techniques may be not able to
estimate the effects of independent variables on Score and Time_Taken
due to extremely unbalanced data set.
How can I estimate the effects of independent variables on Score and Time_Taken?
Many thanks.
