Panel Data Analysis
The aim of this course is to present the background necessary to understand and assess the applications of panel data analysis and to provide skills which could be applied to analyse a variety of research and policy problems related to Business. Both static and dynamic models for panel data analysis are presented, with special attention to choosing the most suitable estimator for each model. In particular, the course covers the different structures of data and the advantages and limitations of panel data. Moreover, several cases on how to derive economic models combining panel data and Stata‚ are discussed.
