Panel-data analysis using Stata


This course provides an introduction to the theory and practice of panel-data analysis. After introducing the fixed-effects and random-effects approaches to unobserved individual-level heterogeneity, the course covers linear models with exogenous covariates, linear models with endogenous variables, dynamic linear models, and some nonlinear models. A quick introduction to the generalized method of moments estimation technique is also included. The differences between the individual-specific and population-averaged interpretations are discussed throughout the course. Concepts are extensively illustrated using exercises and examples worked in Stata.
