Ramb&Reitzig – Non Linear Functions in Panel Data Models Theoretical models often are nonlinear e.g. in economics the well known q-model Micro panel data NLLS estimator is biased Fixed effects estimator is efficient Standard software package is not available Overview

Ramb&Reitzig – Non Linear Functions in Panel Data Models Pros Different results by estimating pooled cross sectional nonlinear least squares on the one hand and by estimating fixed effects using the algorithm on the other hand. Results using the algorithm are more efficient Summary Cons Do-File is limited to the q-model Heteroskedasticity? Robust estimation is necessary Local or global maximum? Bootstrap is necessary Dynamics? GMM is necessary
