**Econometric Analysis of Panel Data**

Panel Data Analysis Random Effects Assumptions GLS Estimator Panel-Robust Variance-Covariance Matrix ML Estimator Hypothesis Testing Test for Random Effects Fixed Effects vs. Random Effects

**Panel Data Analysis Random Effects Model**

ui is random, independent of eit and xit. Define eit = ui + eit the error components.

3
**Random Effects Model Assumptions Strict Exogeneity Homoschedasticity**

X includes a constant term, otherwise E(ui|X)=u. Homoschedasticity Constant Auto-covariance (within panels)

**Model Estimation: RE-OLS**

Need a consistent estimator of q: Estimate the fixed effects model to obtain Estimate the between model to obtain Or, estimate the pooled model to obtain Based on the estimated large sample variances, it is safe to obtain

**Hypothesis Testing To Pool or Not To Pool, Continued**

Test for Var(ui) = 0, that is If Ti=T for all i, the Lagrange-multiplier test statistic (Breusch-Pagan, 1980) is:

**Hypothesis Testing To Pool or Not To Pool, Continued**

For unbalanced panels, the modified Breusch-Pagan LM test for random effects (Baltagi-Li, 1990) is: Alternative one-side test:

**Hypothesis Testing Fixed Effects vs. Random Effects**

Estimator Random Effects E(ui|Xi) = 0 Fixed Effects E(ui|Xi) =/= 0 GLS or RE-OLS (Random Effects) Consistent and Efficient Inconsistent LSDV or FE-OLS (Fixed Effects) Consistent Inefficient Possibly Efficient

19
**Hypothesis Testing Fixed Effects vs. Random Effects**

Fixed effects estimator is consistent under H0 and H1; Random effects estimator is efficient under H0, but it is inconsistent under H1. Hausman Test Statistic

**Hypothesis Testing Fixed Effects vs. Random Effects**

Alternative (Asym. Eq.) Hausman Test Estimate any of the random effects models F Test that g = 0

**Hypothesis Testing Fixed Effects vs. Random Effects**

Ahn-Low Test (1996) Based on the estimated errors (GLS residuals) of the random effects model, estimate the following regression:

**Example: Investment Demand**

Grunfeld and Griliches [1960] i = 10 firms: GM, CH, GE, WE, US, AF, DM, GY, UN, IBM; t = 20 years: Iit = Gross investment Fit = Market value Cit = Value of the stock of plant and equipment

Dealing with Heteroscedasticity In some cases an appropriate scaling of the data is the best way to deal with heteroscedasticity. For example, in the model.
