About the Edition

This paper analyzes the second order bias of instrumental variables estimators for a dynamic panel model with fixed effects. Three different methods of second order bias correction are considered. Simulation experiments show that these methods perform well if the model does not have a root near unity but break down near the unit circle. To remedy the problem near the unit root a weak instrument approximation is used. We show that an estimator based on long differencing the model is approximately achieving the minimal bias in a certain class of instrumental variables (IV) estimators. Simulation experiments document the performance of the proposed procedure in finite samples. Keywords: dynamic panel, bias correction, second order, unit root, weak instrument.

A Bias-Corrected Method of Moments Approach to Estimation of Dynamic Short-T Panels The proposed approach can be applied to estimation of a variety of models such as spatial and dynamic panel data models. In this paper we focus on the latter and consider both univariate and multivariate panel data models with short time dimension Cited by: 1.   Dear Statalisters, I have developed a new Stata estimation command for quasi-maximum likelihood estimation of linear dynamic panel data models with a short time horizon, in particular the random-effects ML estimator by Bhargava and Sargan () and the fixed-effects transformed ML estimator by Hsiao, Pesaran, and Tahmiscioglu ().

Dynamic panel models play a natural role in several important areas of corporate finance, but the combination of fixed effects and lagged dependent variables introduces serious econometric bias. Several methods of counteracting these biases are available and Cited by: Difference of 'dynamic panel (Nickell) bias' and the 'incidental parameter problem' in panel data?

This paper is the first step in a study of instrumental variables analysis with randomized trials to estimate the effects of settings on individuals. The goal of the study is to examine the strengths and weaknesses of the approach and present them in ways that are broadly accessible to applied quantitative social scientists. “Long difference instrumental variables estimation for dynamic panel models with fixed effects“ (earlier title: Bias Corrected Instrumental Variables Estimation for Dynamic Panel Models with Fixed Effects) (with Jinyong Hahn and Jerry Hausman), Journal of .

This study extends earlier results on bias-corrected estimators for the fixed-effects dynamic panel data model.

We derive the inconsistency of the LSDV estimator for finite T and N large in case of both time-series and cross-section heteroscedasticity and show how to implement it in bias correction by: This paper considers the estimation methods for dynamic panel data (DPD) models with fixed effects which suggested in econometric literature, such as least squares (LS) and generalized method of moments (GMM).

These methods obtain biased estimators for DPD models. The LS estimator is inconsistent when the time dimension (T) is short regardless of the cross sectional.

The inconsistency of the conventional Fixed Effect (FE) estimator in Dynamic Panel Data (DPD) models for fixed T has been one of the leading topics in the DPD literature for the last three decades, see e.g. Nickell () and Kiviet (). 1 Because of the inconsistency of the FE estimator, the estimation of linear DPD models has been mainly Cited by: 2.

This paper considers the estimation methods for dynamic panel data (DPD) models with fixed effects which suggested in econometric literature, such as least squares (LS) and generalized method of moments (GMM). These methods obtain biased estimators for DPD models.
